    I'm not certain this is anything caused by cpanel, but I didn't know where else to post it.

    I receive these emails after working in SFTP for a period of time (minutes/half hour, etc.) and this evening, I got a bunch AFTER I had already logged out of ssh.
    Is there any particular reason CSF would be reporting after-the-fact? I have no reason to suspect I've been hacked, as this is a fairly new server and I'm working the kinks out with the firewall.
    I received 3 after already exiting putty.
    Timestamps of the notices:
    Thu Dec 23 02:54:36 2010 -0500
    Thu Dec 23 02:54:36 2010 -0500
    Thu Dec 23 02:54:36 2010 -0500

    Yes, 3 different emails all with the same timestamp.


    As I was typing this message, I haven't logged into ssh in quite a while.
    Any suggestions on what's going on?
