What is Leech Protect?

Postby admin » Sun Oct 21, 2012 2:32 am

Leech Protect allows you to prevent users from publicly posting their password to a restricted area of your site. It also can prevent people from attempting to guess a user's password through repeated guesses.

1. To access the Leech Protect Menu, click on the icon above the words Leech Protect on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

2. Navigate to the folder you wish to protect, and click on its name.

3. Enter the number of times a user may login to this folder during a 2 hour period in the box next to Number of logins per username Allowed in a 2 hour period:

4. Enter the web address of a site you wish to send users to who violate the maximum number of logins allowed next to Url to redirect leech users to:

5. If you wish to be alerted to violations, click the box next to Send Email Alert to and place your email address in the blank field next to Send Email Alert to.

6. If you wish to have an account suspended when it violates the maximum number of logins, click the box next to Disable Compromised Accounts

7. Click on Enable to enable leech protection.
