#cPHulk in #cPanel 70 : Block #domain trolls, hackers and pests by country

ZFBot

Is your blog or publication swamped by garbage commentary originating from particular countries?

While WordPress based plug-ins take care of the issue partially, it’s always good to have additional options.

Many web servers hosting blogs operate on cPanel, an industry standard, and the upcoming version 70 ups the ante against domain trolls, hackers and other pests.

The new version of cPHulk, an intrusion detection and blocking system, will offer country management.

Blocking countries with consistent harassing behavior can take care of the issue, even when there are some good guys in that area. At the end of the day, it’s all about sleeping well at night, knowing that attackers will be kept at bay.

Here’s what’s coming up:

In previous versions of cPanel & WHM, server administrators could only manage their blacklists or whitelists by IP address. As of v70, hosts can block login attempts by country or provide easier access to selected regions of their choosing.

This update gives hosts greater versatility in how they protect user data. For example, if a server administrator who only does business in North America is alerted to suspicious traffic from Iceland, that host can now block all login attempts coming in from that country. Subsequently, a host can still whitelist individual IPs from that list of IPs or remove the country from the blacklist entirely.

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing, I have blocked some countries by using country management of cphulk and still able to access Whm/cpanel/server SSH /FTP /Mail services. Is there any other settings need to make to take effect?
