    I have enabled CSF/LFD on my centos5 box (i own the whole server and have whm) and configured it to basically block all non-essential incoming ports to the general public. I have configured it to only allow access to all ports to my ip. The only port open to the public that is cpanel-related is the webmail. WHM and cpanel are blocked completely to the public ip space. SO, I am wondering why cphulk is still detecting attacks to 'system'. Can anyone clarify what exactly 'system' stands for? Is it the main whm/cpanel login page? I also get attacks to 'mail', although I'm not sure if that is the webmail login or the actual smtp and imap daemons. Can anyone clarify? Thanks.
