cPanel Technical Support has been heavily impacted by hurricane Beryl and our ability to respond to tickets has been hindered as a result. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we address these delays.

how to block attempted security hacks



  • vanessa
    Mod_security might block some of this, but they are mainly just automated attacks that literally every website on the internet experiences. You probably want to consider more sophisticated software like Imunify360 or Bitninja. For the WHM/cPanel services, make sure cphulkd is enabled in WHM. You can't stop these attacks from hitting your server but you can tell the server not to accept these requests.

    If you run a server connected to the Internet, you may as well get used to seeing these automated attempts, because they are ongoing. I agree with @vanessa, using a security app like Imunify360 or Bitninja will help block a majority of these.
