Default Is ISPConf Admin panel brute force attack safe?

Hi Guys

Just want to know is my ISPConfig panel on port 8080 protected from brute force attacks trying to guess username and password?

I dont see any jails for it in fail2ban is it possible to set one up?



Thanks

Alex

I don't think so because failed login attempts aren't logged anywhere, so fail2ban cannot know about them.

Better use a strong password.

ISPConfig has its own mecahnism to block brute force attcks builtin (similar to what fail2ban is doing). So there is no need to use fail2ban for ispconfig logins.

Is there anyway of adjusting the inbuilt brute force protection?

I.E. number of attempts and length of ban time?

Not without modifying the code of the login.php script.
