The zoo allows ssh connections but recently fail to ban (my blog) has been rather ‘busy’ with people who think they control it after all the zoo’s master password is banana. You actually cant as i am joking [actually its fiftyshadesofbananas*] but Euripides knew it too about fools – see the about page.
I have had to limit via these iptables rules
-I INPUT -p tcp –dport 22 -i eth0 -m state –state NEW -m recent –set
-I INPUT -p tcp –dport 22 -i eth0 -m state –state NEW -m recent –update –seconds 60 –hitcount 4 -j DROP
Seem to have restored some sanity.
However why do i have rate limit and firewall. One of those seems out of touch. Sure i could turn off ssh but it does get used.
