Have a look at this, you can use several things from this page:
I would advise to not change perl rights, which can cause issues if you do.

Next to that, install csf/lfd firewall.
If I'm not mistaken if you choose the "auto" commandline option on installation, this will be installed including the brute force monitor scripts.
If not or if you already installed DA, have look at this:

How do you mean? CSF/LFD is a plugin which is nog build by DA so this way it's not supported.
But when using the "auto" it's still installed with DA.
Next to that, you can always install it yourself with DA and there is a install-directadmin.sh present in CSF.

So why do you think CSF/LFD is not supported?
