Disable ssh access for password-guessing bots
Authored by: stephenr on Jun 10, '09 04:07:26PM
First, I modified this script to pick up other brute force like activity against SSH (i already have password auth turned off)..

Then I got rid of that and went for a better solution: fail2ban.

It's available as a pre-built OS X package here: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/lsait/admin/mac/software/index.asp
