This happened to me for second time now

When I try to login to WMH, it says

Brute Force Protection

This account is currently locked out because a brute force attempt was detected. Please wait a few minutes and try again. Attempting to login again will only increase this delay. If you frequently experience this problem, we recommend having your username changed to something less generic.

okay, I'm gonna see look db via SSH to see these attacks. But what a suprise, I can't login to my SSH via Putty

Server refused our key
Access denied
root@server's password:
Access denied
root@server's password:
Access denied
root@server's password:
Access denied
root@server's password:

(yes, password is correct and the first attempt was from my key)

  • How can I reenable my access without waiting for cPHulk to reenable access to my account?
  • How can I disable cPHulk from locking my SSH account?

Unfortunately, you have to wait before cPHulk reenables access to your server. Afterwards, you can add yourself to Trusted Hosts List via WHM so you won't be locked again.
