I installed csf firewall as suggestions on the forum but i am still getting Brute Force Attacks on my VPS.
What are the ways to block Brute Force Attacks completely?

There are so many Brute Force Attacks like this i am getting on my hosting.

Change your SSH port or install fail2ban.

Yeah just change the port number for SSH, brute force is something you can't stop 100% but just block those address after a certain number of failed attempts with CSF.
Even with the default SSH port a good block policy i.e 5 failed attempts should get keep you safe. If you are seeing repeat offenders just blacklist them permanently.

Your upstream host may be able to help with this too. They don't want the bad traffic on their networks, so they should be able to help with a solution too. I would contact them.

good day

If you use cpanel, ask your hosting provider to enable the following option

CPHulk Brute Force Protection

It looks like CSF + cPHulk is doing its job. Those are just warning notifications which you can safely disable.

Besides the points already mentioned, if you notice the attacks are all coming from the same high-risk countries such as China, Russia, Bangladesh, I would consider just blocking large blocks of IPs from those countries unless you are targeting them in your sales.
