Ask Slashdot: FTP Server Honeypots? 298

An anonymous reader writes "I run an FTP server for a few dozen people, and it seems like every week I have a random IP address connect to my box and try guessing 'Administrator' passwords once every five seconds or so. This poses no real risk to me, since all my accounts have custom (uncommon) names. But if this is happening to me, I would wager lots of people are at risk of low level, persistent, long term password cracking attempts. Is there a way to report the perpetrators, or any action we can take to address this kind of danger?"
