Hi,

I am using csf on the server and just installed the mod_security. But after installing it I have found many entries as follow:

xx.xx.xx.xx # lfd: 5 (mod_security) login failures from xx.xx.xx.xx - Tue Jul 8 07:14:47 2008

There were many IP addresses blocked as mentioned above. Can anyone tell me what exactly the above mean? and why the IP was blocked?

Thanks,
