What means "bruteforcelogin"?
The IP has called many Logins on Wordpress, Webmin, Plesk or other CMS/Controllpanels.
The Script use in the most cases Firefox19, BingBot and GoogleBot as UserAgent (grep for "eval(" or "eval(base64_decode(" in the Webspace) and often the name was "mod_system.php"

There is a bruteforcelogin attack on my cpanel server, how can i find the abuse user and prevent it?

Hello :)

Brute force is an attack (hacking) method that involves using an automated system to guess the password to your web server or services. You can enable cPHulk (WHM Home >> Security Center >> cPHulk Brute Force Protection) and a third-party firewall management utility such as CSF to help prevent these types of attacks on your system.

Thank you.
