Apache connections after CSF ip block in cPanel.
Posted: 10 Oct 2019, 01:46
I had hundreds of http connections from the abusive IP and added IP to csf.deny. Apache status page however continued showing connections from this IP. I restarted services and killed processes without any luck. I had to add IP to CloudFlare firewall to stop the connections. Is there a certain attack rate that makes CSF and software firewall useless for this case?
