Comment Have sshd give out less info (Score 1) 327

Haven't seen anyone mention this but... how about patching sshd so that an attacker can't tell the difference between a connection failing because of a bad userid or because of a bad password/key? Let them sit and spin (a tarpit?) trying to break into that "amanda" account they think I have - or blow out their database thinking every host has every possible userid in the book.
