Fast forward about to about three years ago, when I started to get into dedicated servers quite heavily. This is when I began to host gaming servers for friends, and boy, let me tell you, it was a learning experience. Before I continue, let me say that I am by no means an expert on this subject, but I like to think I have more knowledge than the Average Joe when it comes to dedicated servers. So please, take this article with a grain of salt, and by all means, give me some feedback on what you would do, and why. Anyhow, back on topic! ModSecurity: ModSec for short! I heard about Fail2Ban a while back when I was playing a game with some friends.
One of the most common ways for malicious software malware to penetrate the defenses of various web services is via brute-force attacks. Through repeated login attempts, malware can overwhelm the authentication service and bypass existing password protections. Fortunately, most modern web servers offer some form of brute-force protection. In this article, we will show you how to protect your Dedicated Server from brute-force attacks by enabling cPHulk. Congratulations, now you know how to protect your dedicated server from brute-force attacks by enabling cPHulk in WHM! It is recommended that users combine brute-force protection with other forms of security such as firewalls, monitoring software, and malware scanners. As digital threats emerge, it is important to take advantage of every security tool at your disposal. This is why cPanel offers a unique value for users looking to secure their servers from brute-force attacks.
The influx of employees working from home increases the attack surface for hackers, and cybercriminals are taking advantage of it. RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol, and is a technology that allows users to log into remote work stations across the internet. RDP may be used by both, telecommuters and tech support personnel that are troubleshooting an issue via a secure name and password. This leaves systems vulnerable to brute-force attacks, where cybercriminals try repeated login attempts with varying username and password combinations, attempting to guess the login credentials to gain permissions and access to data and folders. Emotet is a sophisticated Trojan that commonly functions as a downloader or dropper of other malware. Emotet primarily spreads via malicious email attachments and attempts to proliferate within a network by brute forcing user credentials and writing to shared drives. If successful, an attacker could use an Emotet infection to obtain sensitive information. With brute force attacks, hackers are looking for an easy attack. The goal is to ensure that your server is not an easy target for these types of attacks. Your server has built-in defense mechanisms that ban an IP with multiple failed login attempts, which helps to to block these attacks.
