    It's blocking the IPs because it reached the "Connection Tracking" limit set in your csf config file at /etc/csf/csf.conf

    Hello :)

    The alert you pasted indicates the IP address was blocked automatically by CSF, so you should not have to manually block these IP addresses unless the same ones continue to reach this limit.

    Thank you.

    Please consider contacting CSF directly or through their support forums if you feel this is a flaw with their firewall application.

    Thank you.

    If your site has a lot of images it can cause a clients browser to create multiple simultaneous connections to your server.

    You can try raising or disabling CT_LIMIT in your csf conf.

    However, I don't think this is a CSF issue... 275 connections is a lot.

    Perhaps make sure your Apache settings are correct... lower timeout value, make sure keepalive is on, and perhaps lower max requests per child. Something related to your site or Apache config has to be causing a visitor to open that many port 80 connections. The shell output from 'httpd fullstatus' might help as well.
