fail2ban logging support


Well-known member
I am working on my fail2ban implementation for Centmin Mod LEMP users and it just came to me that Xenforo 1.5 and/or XF 2 could have native and optional support for fail2ban for failed logins similar to this wordpress fail2ban plugin https://en-au.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-fail2ban/.

So Xenforo 2 failed logins can be written to a custom user defined log path. Then just have a fail2ban filter and jail to pick up those logged entries for banning at system firewall level or even Cloudflare firewall level via Cloudflare API based fail2ban action
