An anonymous reader writes "Whitedust has a very interesting article on the recent SSH brute force attacks. The article goes into depth on how to monitor these attackes and to report them to the authorities. It also discusses various tools that are available. According to the article, mostly compromised Linux systems from outside of North America are responsible for the attacks. Even the author's DSL connection was getting break-in attempts."
