    Hello, please can anyone give me an advice on what to change in WHM to prevent, fix following issue?

    in tail /var/log/messages -n1000

    I have many entries like:
    Code:
    Apr 29 19:52:14 host1 named[1601]: client 1.2.3.4#13321: view external: query (cache) 'onedomainthatwashostedonserver.com/A/IN' denied
    1.2.3.4 is IP of some server which is not mine

    But it is more than one request per second..

    What can i do in WHM please?

    thx, also I found that ConfigServerFirewall has this option in config file:

    LF_BIND_PERM number of seconds ban or 1 is permanent
    LF_BIND number of denied requests from IP

    not sure if would be wise to enale it by setting value like 100? (more about this csf option)

    A user references the values they use for those options on this post:

    Named CPU Usage

    You could try those, or experiment with your own custom values.

    Thank you.
