    Ok i get this scan detection 15-30 times a day.... any one know how to stop it?

    I know this has to do with cpanel/whm... the ip is coming from burst, and i have talked to several of the network admins at various times... they all agree it is becuase of whm/cpanel.

    this is psad port scan active detection , your danger level email notification is set to 1 you may want to increase it.

    $DANGER_LEVELS{'1'} = 5;
    $DANGER_LEVELS{'2'} = 50;<------
    $DANGER_LEVELS{'3'} = 1000;
    $DANGER_LEVELS{'4'} = 5000;
    my $EMAIL_ALERT_DANGER_LEVEL = 2;<-50 from same source

    Seeing the ports that are being scanned, it is likely someone (or a virus/worm) looking for Windows machines to exploit. Scans "might" be a before an attemped crack, but by themselves they won't do you any harm.
