We see thousands of attempts all day, every day. Its just part of being on the net. Fail2ban has been pretty effective for us. You can configure it easily to set up "move on" rules for the bots and not blow your leg off because you mistyped a couple times.
Meanwhile, those of us that like both Star Wars & Star Trek are thinking, "hrrm, Episode 7 has a chance now of not sucking."
His Star Trek reboot sucked. He can now kill both franchises in their reboots.
How on earth does a May 2011 hackaday come a year and a half before an October 2009 patent filing?
Patents: All of the words in the laws are important.
since most people are not going to happen to go to Belgrade.
Which is good, because if most people were in Belgrade that would be slightly more than 10 people per square meter.
My biggest beef with my Windows phone is that I cannot return it for a refund.
Unanimous means all jurors, not a majority.
might appreciate the vendor's site in English.
enec is 100% right. 99.99% of all port 25 traffic from cable modems is from spambots running on compromised PCs. Comcast, AOL, et al. will never again accept email from address blocks that represents non-commercial users or cable modems, no matter what things you try, static IP, DKIM, SPF or white listing.
Shouldn't this be an April 1st post on Slashdot ?
"Please give us more money and aid!"
And as soon as everyone is omniscient about the undocumented behavior of their devices and the "documented only in source code" behavior of all code of their systems this will be a brilliant solution.
I will respond to your dickish tone with my own:
Ever here of a log file?
How about if you are monitoring the S.M.A.R.T. data to watch for signs of drive failure? You will destroy the drive instead. (Especially if using Munin, because it doesn't show Load_Cycle_Count by default so you won't see it take off.)
How about when your OS is clever and tries to reduce disk use by only flushing the OS block cache intermittently, and that interval is slightly greater than the park timer? Your machine under continuous use parks and unparks continuously.
So there is this little computer in the drive making park decisions. Shouldn't it notice that the drive is parking too often? WD knows how many parks it built the drive to survive, it knows how frequently it is parking. Cap the park rate! Problem solved.
So? What is your Load_Cycle_Count? That is what is being discussed here. The drives are rated for 300,000. I have ones near a million that haven't failed yet, but have also failures around 600,000.
My iPad has correctly found me in all four locations I've tried by triangulating WIFI access points.
Apparently mobile users with GPS have tagged my access points.
If you really have secure passwords, the random guessers aren't going to get them. Log it and move on.
I get thousands of Chinese hackers attempting to break into the battery monitor in my tool shed, big deal. I don't know why my battery voltage and solar current is so important to them, but they can knock themselves out all day.
If the logs bother you then install fail2ban and configure it to lock people out after a few bad guesses. (Then be ready to unlock yourself from an alternate IP when you inevitably lock yourself out.)
