I have a VPS and already been suspended 3 times because of server abuse ..
I suspended the accounts, updated wordpress but the same problem arose again ..

The Server Specs are

2048MB RAM/4096MB BURST/4 Cores/120GB HDD/ the server is mostly populated by wordpress websites ..

Here are the logs from the DC

Code:
The CTID of 13706 is being suspended for reaching a load of 84.91 while only having the following allowed processors 4

Hi Mbekezm,

We run a fair few wordpress websites on a dedicated server but haven't ever had the processor usage go that high. I would have it a guess that either you have an issue with one of the plugins or someone is attempting to brute force access to the website.
I personally have made a point of installing wordfence on all the wordpress sites I set up. Though it pushes the processor usage up slightly per site it will block IP's automatically after so many failed login attempts.
The easiest way to catch it is to temporarily rename the public_html/wp-content/plugins directory and see whether the processor usage drops. If it does (if you haven't already) check your plugins are also up to date, then go through and disable the plugins and see if the processor usage drops.

Thanks again

After looking and searching for days i found a solution that seems to have solved the problem ..
The problem was some ***** (very nasty word) from china were trying to brute force the wp-login.php file of wordpress ,

What i did was i added the the code below to modsecurity, and immediately it started kicking them out after 3 failed logins .. Server seems stable now ..

# Start wp-login.php brute attack
SecUploadDir /tmp
SecTmpDir /tmp
SecDataDir /tmp

SecRequestBodyAccess On

SecAction phase:1,nolog,pass,initcol:ip=%{REMOTE_ADDR},initcol:user=%{REMOTE_ADDR},id:5000134
<Locationmatch "/wp-login.php">
SecRule user:bf_block "@gt 0" "deny,status:401,log,id:5000135,msg:'IP address blocked for 20 minutes, more than 3 login attempts in 10 minutes.'"

SecRule RESPONSE_STATUS "^302" "phase:5,t:none,nolog,pass,setvar:ip.bf_counter=0,id:5000136"

SecRule RESPONSE_STATUS "^200" "phase:5,chain,t:none,nolog,pass,setvar:ip.bf_counter=+1,deprecatevar:ip.bf_counter=1/600,id:5000137"

SecRule ip:bf_counter "@gt 3" "t:none,setvar:user.bf_block=1,expirevar:user.bf_block=1200,setvar:ip.bf_counter=0"
</locationmatch>
ErrorDocument 401 default
# End wp-login.php brute attack
