Re: SFTP question

I think what is the most disturbing is the fact that it eventually
happened to me ... :( ... never thought it would ... 

And truth be told I am guilty at riding the horse bareback with guns blazing
whenever I setup a server ... not paying much attention to security. But alas
... I have learned my lesson ... This incident scared the crap out of me ... lol
... :) ...

Makes me wonder how these guys get hold of IP's so quickly ...

Which begs the question ... do these guys just shoot from the hip? ... or do
they have a mandate or something?

Thank You
