I installed "vsftp" on CentOS 7 x86_64 and how can I block "Brute-force" attack? For example, if someone enters 3 incorrect passwords, then his/her IP address blocked.

You'll need to install and configure some sort of log checking utility like fail2ban or sec.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!
