Once I opened up SSH to the outside world, my machine has been hammered once or twice a day most days, with username failures. None of the usernames would fit a username on my system (except root), and I have ssh set to deny root logins, and only use SSH2. Additionally, I have the following in my login.access (only active entry, the name have been changed on this, but the three names would appear as 3 and four character random alphabetical strings): -:ALL EXCEPT wrbc crr aqp:ALL EXCEPT local
As of the 9th, I've only seen one set of blatant/brute-force attempt at my ssh server. It's interesting, but the major drop in attempts has me more worried than the attempts (could this drop off be because they no longer need to hack me? Could they have hacked me an that be the reason why?) How worried should I be, and what's the best recourse for this?
