vsftp and Brute-force attack

Post by hack3rcon » 2018/12/04 13:28:00

I installed "vsftp" on CentOS 7 x86_64 and how can I block "Brute-force" attack? For example, if someone enters 3 incorrect passwords, then his/her IP address blocked.

Thank you.

You'll need to install and configure some sort of log checking utility like fail2ban or sec.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
