    I was surprised today when I try to block an unique IP and I've seen this:

    Someone can explain this? How works? If I have a lot of differents IPs which try to use bruteforce I just open one of the links and then fill with all suspicius IPs? I'm right?

    Hello :)

    Yes, if you want to blacklist IP addresses, then you add them to that interface to ensure they can no longer login to the server. The updated documentation is available at:

    cPHulk Brute Force Protection

    Thank you.

    There was a upgrade of some kind last night and now my links to the blacklist no longer work when I get a notification of a brute force attack.

    Previously, I could just click on the link in the e-mail or text message, log in via the window from the link, and the IP address in the link was automatically blacklisted. Also I could click on a link to view the blacklist.

    Now I get a HTTP Error 404 - Page not found after logging in via the window from the link.

    Is this a bug? Or does something have to be reconfigured to work?

    Thanks, S

    cPanel version 11.48.0.11 addressed the following issue:

    Fixed case 160929: Adding to cPHulk Black/Whitelist from email notice.

    Do you still experience this problem?

    Thank you.
