login failure daemon

Short for Login Failure Daemon, LFD is a process that's part of the CSF (ConfigServer Security & Firewall) that periodically checks for potential threats to a server. LFD looks for such attacks as brute-force login attempts and if found blocks the IP address attempting to attack that server.
