We have had PCI compliance for about 4 months straight then all of a sudden this comes up:

The server has cPHulk Brute Force Protection on and FTP users are required to use SFTP. I do not understand how I can secure this anymore than I have... I do not want to change my Brute Force Protection settings because it currently just drops the user and doesn't give them any message, and I am afraid that is what is happening. The audit company is Trust Guard; does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone had a similar experience?
