Brute Force?
« on: July 22, 2011, 06:02:47 PM »
I'm trying to log into cPanel but there is a brute force error message that appears whenever I try to log in?

How do I fix this?

The brute force lock is a security measure in place on our cPanel servers to prevent someone from guessing your log in information through trial and error. 

If our server detects too many unsuccessful log in attempts, the brute force lock will go into effect & will lock the account.

If you have encountered the brute force message, please do not keep trying to log in.  Instead, simply wait 15 to 30 minutes & the server will automatically release the lock.

You will need to contact their support to remove the brute force lock

Just want to add a note here...

Most of you know that brute force block can be triggered from multiple incorrect login to cPanel, Horde Webmail, etc..

But do you know that if you use email client (e.g. Outlook, Mac Mail, etc.) to download emails and if your client has the wrong email password, it can also trigger the blocking as well? So if your email client tired to send/receive emails a couple time and indicated it doesn't have the correct ID/password, please check with the info FIRST before try again...

Else, you might have to wait for 15+ min again...

hmmm, i guess if you update your password to your email account and then get outlook to send/receive emails... it will brute force lock because your Outlook is still using the old password??

Brute force (also known as brute force cracking) is a trial and error method used by application programs to decode encrypted data such as passwords or Data Encryption Standard (DES) keys, through exhaustive effort (using brute force) rather than employing intellectual strategies.
