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

Do you still experience this problem?

Thank you.
