CSF Firewall completely locked me out.
« on: June 14, 2016, 11:03:45 AM »
I have been trying to get the ftp folder to work, and was getting a connection issue, I think this is what started the problems.

All of a sudden, my CW Panel stopped working, I could not get access via TTY and also I could not view my website. All services were locked out.

Contacted Host provider who said everything was working at there end, and asked for my IP, I gave this and they logged in and removed my ip from the CSF Firewall blocked IP List.

Obviously this is not ideal, as if this happens again I get completely locked out of everything.
Also looking at CSF blocked IP list, i can see entries for Failed SSH login from from ip addresses in china, korea, germany, vietnam etc.

Any ideas
