    I have been running cPHulk Brute Force Protection and blacklisting IP addresses as they come in as well as having blacklisted entire countries that we do not want into our server. I just got one that I don't know what to do about:
    Code:
    5 failed login attempts to account com• ii (system) -- Large number of attempts from this IP: hoÞ•pò—¿Ë þ•í ä•Æ…ý•ørý•èrý•h¹ã• 
    It looks a little different in this editor than in my email but very similar. All the links to blacklist have this garbled "IP" appended.

    You cannot block it then, since the IP isn't a legitimate IP to block. It's possible they are spoofing the IP in some manner, or that the IP simply didn't get properly logged.

    You can always check for the IP to see if the MySQL database shows a different entry in root SSH mysql command line:

    Code:
    mysql
    \u cphulkd
    select * from brutes;
    It should show all of the IPs that were logged for brute force attempts.
