Hi info, thx... guess question is not so silly I guess :)
but it says: "
Firewall Status: Enabled and Running"
and shouldnT at least cpHulk stop it ... for longer than a few hours?
Thx

find this in my csf
Edit /etc/csf/csf.deny

180.250.162.9 # lfd: (sshd) Failed SSH login from 180.250.162.9 (23.100.232.233ID/Indonesia/-): 5 in the last 3600 secs - Tue Mar 19 04:05:26 2019
the 23.100.232.233 is the IP I desperately try to block and cpanel has a love affair with it
I had also added this IP in this table 2 days ago...to no avail
thx
Dan
