Fail2ban is good stuff

Fail2ban is a handy little script for anyone who wants to protect them self from hackers brute force attacks. Fail2ban scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail or /var/log/apache/error_log and bans IP that makes too many password failures. It updates firewall rules to reject the IP address. It works with SSH, HTTP, FTP, Mail services etc.
