Happens every day on our network. I get about 500 to 1000 hits a day on our
servers/router logs of ppl port scanning and or running log in scripts
trying to crack a username/pass. I have only turned a few in to thier ISP's
abuse address and never heard anything from it except for a canned message
here and there. Doesn't seem like anyone cares. Most hack attempts come from
SBC DSL or china it seems.

As far as I know I have only been hacked once, and it was my own fault. I
had a FreeBSD box that I was doing some testing on and I forgot about it and
left it on the Public side of the network. I had set up a user account with
the same username and Pass.Well someone ran a script on it and got in the
server. I didn't realize it until my MRTG router graph went crazy for a day
with a large amount of traffic. I tracked it down to the box I forgot about
and figured out what happened. They were uploading a bunch of stuff to the
box through FTP. I did turn them into thier ISP but never heard anything
from it.

Theoretically, if someone attempted to hack into your network via your
router, say at least ten times, what would you do?
If you could identify this culprit via logs and IP addresses, where you had
them dead to rights, what would you do?
