cPHulk Brute Force Protection - cPHulkBrute force is an attack (hacking) method that involves using an automated system to guess the password to your web server or services. cPHulk provides protection against brute force attacks.

cPHulk will protect POP3 and IMAP against brute force attacks if you use the Dovecot mailserver. Also, cPHulk will protect other services on any mailserver that you use against brute-force attacks.
