  • Added mechanism to prevent multiple email/block attempts from login attacks in lfd
  • Added new feature – Process Tracking. This option enables tracking of user and nobody processes and examines them for suspicious executables or open network ports. Its purpose is to identify potential exploit processes that are running on the server, even if they are obfuscated to appear as system services.
