iClickAndHost ModSecurity firewall will now prevent brute force attacks
We at iClickAndHost have updated the ModSecurity Apache plugin running on all of our web hosting servers. This plugin acts as a firewall for web applications and has so far reduced the number of hacked websites on our servers significantly.
As of this week, ModSecurity will also prevent “brute force” attacks. A brute force attack stands for an attempt to guess the username and password of a web application, using a predefined set of usernames and passwords and combining them at random.
If there are more than 15 failed login attempts from an IP address within 3 minutes, the IP address will be blocked from the website for the next 30 minutes.
To help the ModSecurity plugin combat brute force attacks, the App Installer in our free-of-charge Hepsia Control Panel is also configured to replace the default “admin” username, which is used by the majority of web applications by default.

We protect our customers by enforcing strict firewall rules, never allowing suspicious connections and performing daily backups on all our servers! You can rely on iClickAndHost for all your web hosting needs. Whether it's a small personal website or a resource-hungry popular site.
