I've been having a problem with dictionary hacker attempts on my
system (hundreds or even thousands a day), so I implemented the
Solution: apt-get install fail2ban (read up on the docs, it can drop IPs
based on attempts etc)
For Justin and all the others who responded - thanks. I installed
fail2ban a couple of days ago, and am waiting for someone to try it again.
I also tried to find the support forums for qpopper, but the only ones I
found hadn't had a post in over 2 years. So maybe I need to change pop3
But I'm not worried about that right now. I think from the docs that
fail2ban will do what I need.
