POP3 Brute-Force Protection

POP3 Protection Overview

RdpGuard protects your POP3 server from brute-force attacks.

It works with POP3 ports or logs on your server to detect and block attacker's IP addresses when the number of failed login attempts from the single IP address reaches a set limit.

Check the instructions below to learn how to enable and configure POP3 protection.

To Enable and Configure POP3 Protection

Monitoring method for POP3 protocol

The following monitoring methods are supported for POP3 protocol:

Log based monitoring

The default option recommended for POP3 monitoring is through Logs. This method involves monitoring logs of a specific POP3 server and is more efficient in terms of resource usage compared to monitoring network traffic. Moreover, it also supports SSL/TLS connections and detection of usernames.

POP3 Server

The following POP3 servers are supported for now:

Log files directory

Specify log files directory used by selected POP3 server.

Traffic based monitoring

The alternative option for monitoring POP3 is through traffic. This method can be used with any POP3 server, but consumes more resources compared to monitoring via logs. It's also important to note that this method does not provide support for SSL/TLS connections or detection of usernames.

Traffic based POP3 monitoring

POP3 Monitoring via Traffic

The following traffic based monitoring methods are supported

  • WinPcap - Works on all Windows Editions, WinPcap must be installed.
  • Raw Sockets - Does not work on Windows Server 2008 or with firewalls.

POP3 port

You may specify multiple comma-separated ports for POP3 traffic monitoring.

Our customers say

"This sotware is really great. It's a relief. Because my server is constantly under attack. Thanks RdpGuard" - Joaquim De Sousa Marques

"Nice product. I used to implement something similiar in a low-tech and cumbersome manner via a script called TSBlock (not mine). This makes it much easier and is well worth the pricetag for SMB's." - J. Johnson

"Absolutely amazed at your product. We are a church in the North Dallas area, and I discovered this morning multiple failed logon attempts via our Remote Access Server. A friend suggested your product, so I immediately downloaded the trial. It had a list of about five blocked IP addresses in minutes, and that was enough to lead me to push the BUY button. Over the past 10-15 minutes the list is now about thirty with at least a third being international attempts to break into our system. Thanks for a great product. You may have just saved us much grief." - John Hallford

"Love the software. RDP on our Windows servers is just ridiculous. We would block it in the router but we have lots of old-time customers that would have issues." - Scott Hirsch

"Love the software! Makes it easier than tailoring VB Scripts!!" - Nick Brennan

"It's a great product - really stopping those RDP attackers :-)" - Dave, UK

"First of all: Your application is very (!!!) useful and I like it very much securing my 2012 R2 server. RdpGuard is the best solution, I found on the market and after 10 minutes of testing it I ordered the fully-featured version. :-)" - Carsten Baltes
