Other Options? DenyHosts
Authored by: vortmax on Aug 19, '05 06:18:56PM

This a python sccript that you can cron as root. It checks the access logs and for those hits from script kiddies, it will add to the /etc/hosts.deny file the offending IP.

Careful if you fail your own login passwordd. You could deny your valid ip.
