DenyHosts is a python program that automatically blocks ssh attacks by adding entries to /etc/hosts.deny.
DenyHosts will also inform Linux administrators about offending hosts, attacked users and suspicious logins.

Fits a powerlful need with alot of people
A Great toolset for mitigating the effects of SSHD brute force attacks that continually bombard servers attached to the Internet. This SF project seems to have been abandoned by its original developer; thankfully the reigns have been taken over by a new maintainer with new versions and bug fixes available: http:/sf.net/projects/denyhost
Thanks for Denyhosts, it's great!
Love this app
