    This is an excellent way to manage complex firewall rules easily & quickly.

    There are a number of features which I feel would GREATLY enhance Zeroshell:

    Straight-forward SPI iptables firewall script
    Daemon process that checks for login authentication failures for:

    Courier imap, Dovecot, uw-imap, Kerio
    cPanel, WHM, Webmail (cPanel servers only)
    Pure-ftpd, vsftpd, Proftpd
    Password protected web pages (htpasswd)
    Mod_security failures (v1 and v2)
    Suhosin failures
    Exim SMTP AUTH
    Custom login failures with separate log file and regular expression matching

    POP3/IMAP login tracking to enforce logins per hour
    SSH login notification
    SU login notification
    Excessive connection blocking
    UI Integration for cPanel, DirectAdmin and Webmin
    Easy upgrade between versions from within cPanel/WHM, DirectAdmin or Webmin
    Easy upgrade between versions from shell
    Pre-configured to work on a cPanel server with all the standard cPanel ports open
    Pre-configured to work on a DirectAdmin server with all the standard DirectAdmin ports open
    Auto-configures the SSH port if it’s non-standard on installation
    Block traffic on unused server IP addresses – helps reduce the risk to your server
    Alert when end-user scripts sending excessive emails per hour – for identifying spamming scripts
    Suspicious process reporting – reports potential exploits running on the server
    Excessive user processes reporting
    Excessive user process usage reporting and optional termination
    Suspicious file reporting – reports potential exploit files in /tmp and similar directories
    Directory and file watching – reports if a watched directory or a file changes
    Block traffic on the DShield Block List and the Spamhaus DROP List
    BOGON packet protection
    Pre-configured settings for Low, Medium or High firewall security (cPanel servers only)
    Works with multiple ethernet devices
    Server Security Check – Performs a basic security and settings check on the server (via cPanel/DirectAdmin/Webmin UI)
    Allow Dynamic DNS IP addresses – always allow your IP address even if it changes whenever you connect to the internet
    Alert sent if server load average remains high for a specified length of time
    mod_security log reporting (if installed)
    Email relay tracking – tracks all email sent through the server and issues alerts for excessive usage (cPanel servers only)
    IDS (Intrusion Detection System) – the last line of detection alerts you to changes to system and application binaries
    SYN Flood protection
    Ping of death protection
    Port Scan tracking and blocking
    Permanent and Temporary (with TTL) IP blocking
    Exploit checks
    Account modification tracking – sends alerts if an account entry is modified, e.g. if the password is changed or the login shell
    Shared syslog aware
    Messenger Service – Allows you to redirect connection requests from blocked IP addresses to preconfigured text and html pages to inform the visitor that they have been blocked in the firewall. This can be particularly useful for those with a large user base and help process support requests more efficiently
    Country Code blocking – Allows you to deny or allow access by ISO Country Code
    Port Flooding Detection – Per IP, per Port connection flooding detection and mitigation to help block DOS attacks
    DirectAdmin UI integration
    Updated Webmin UI integration
    WHM root access notification (cPanel servers only)
    lfd Clustering – allows IP address blocks to be automatically propagated around a group of servers running lfd. It allows allows cluster-wide allows, removals and configuration changes
    Quick start csf – deferred startup by lfd for servers with large block and/or allow lists
    Distributed Login Failure Attack detection
    Temporary IP allows (with TTL)
    IPv6 Support with ip6tables
    Integrated UI – no need for a separate Control Panel or Apache to use the csf configuration
    Integrated support for cse within the Integrated UI
    cPanel Reseller access to per reseller configurable options Unblock, Deny, Allow and Search IP address blocks
    System Statistics – Basic graphs showing the performance of the server, e.g. Load Averages, CPU Usage, Memory Usage, etc

    It is extremely stable and can be found at:

    Please consider adding this Fulvio.
