Login plesk 'admin' lock attack possible ?

    Is this possible ? If yes ... please fix this a.s.a.p. !!!!

    I look for a Plesk hoster find his login-screen and start a login procedure for 'admin' every 20 seconds. After X-times .. admin account will be locked for about 30 minutes.

    After that I go back and lock the admin account again (by logging in 3 times with wrong credentials.).

    This way, Plesk admin's cannot access their Plesk anymore (at least .. not that simple).

    Can Plesk hosters be harassed like this in combination with a simple script ?

    SO: is admin-locking IP-sensitive or not ?

    If not --> serious problem.

    You can lock down admin logins to use a blacklist whitelist if you go to SERVER->ACCESS. If someone were to try this, you could simply blacklist their IP, or whitelist your own range, and block everyone else. The server admin can always unlock a session by removing it from the DB as well.

    Just like any DoS attack, mitigation at the network level is key.
