Hi,

Because CpHulk and lfd guard against the same security thread, I was wondering if someone was using both at the same time and has experienced a different outcome.

E.g. CpHulk blocked the culprit but lfd did not or the other way around. I.a.w. if you're already using the csf/lfd suite, is enabling CpHulk worth the extra resources?

Thanks.

I use CSF/LFD. I have CPHulk disabled. I cannot see how anything can work better than CSF/LFD. Install it and read your logs and look at how much it protects you. It is also easily configured.

Hi,

Thanks for your input.
We also use the csf/lfd suite on all servers and have cphulk disabled by default.
I guess there's no apparent reason then why we should enable it...

RE: cPHulk LFD

I run them both side by side and have not had any problems. They do not seem to interfere with each other. One more tripwire is how I see it.

I have more experience with LFD and have a lot more confidence in it and find it easier to configure. cPHulk is a bit trigger happy for me, but I'm sure that has a lot to do with how it's configured.
