RoundCube Fail2Ban Plugin is a small plugin that will display a failed login attempts in your syslog or userlogins log file. Using this information Fail2Ban will be able to block a user for a set amount of time. The best part, the block is happening at the IP level and blocks the IP address, not the user they are trying to log in as.

thanks for your nice blog entry.
I am using kolab v3.0 and roundcube is already logging to “/var/log/roundcubemail/userlogins”. Your filter should work. I added the roundcube jail and filter entry and set it to watch the logging file. Your filter should work by default.
thanks for this blog entry
Hi, im trying this out,
my login failure writes to the file, put is there any failure in my regex?
[22-Feb-2014 19:51:28 +0100]: FAILED login for from 192.168.1.10
failregex = FAILED login for .*. from
it should be in this way on my version:
failregex = ^.*FAILED login for from
Working as a charm on virtual servers environment (multiples logs) inside virtualmin/webmin. Many thanks buddy!!
One major issue with using IP address is that, it could block the entire office from accessing after one employee types in a wrong password several times…
Then add the line
ignoreip = [office ip address] to the fail2ban/jail.conf: entry;
enabled = true
port = http,https
filter = roundcube
action = iptables-multiport[name=roundcube, port=”http,https”]
logpath = /var/www/html/roundcube/logs/userlogins
Ignoreip = 123.456.789.0/24
