fail2ban-0.4.0 released

I'm proud to announce the first stable release of Fail2ban. There is only one bug fix since 0.3.1.

Fail2Ban scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail or /var/log/apache/error_log and bans IP that makes too many password failures.

fail2ban-0.3.0 released

After several months of inactivity, a new release of Fail2Ban is available. It can now supervise several files and supports regular expressions. Thus it is possible to ban IPs which try brute force against Apache authentification for example.

If you own a server with services such as Apache, SSH or others, try it.
