# Send an email alert if anyone accesses WHM via root. An IP address will be

# reported again 1 hour after the last tracked access (or if lfd is restarted)



Enable SSH login Alerts

Login to your server as root user

cd /root

vi .bashrc

Scroll to the end of the file then add the following:

echo ‘ALERT – Root Shell Access (ServerName) on:’ `date` `who` | mail -s “Alert: Root Access from `who | cut -d'(‘ -f2 | cut -d’)’ -f1`” your@yourdomain.com

Save that file.
