So I notice the ethernet light on my wee server popping away… I check out the logs and notice something attacking my server. Ah a rather stupid brut force hack attempt. Some automated piece of (
Sh!T) digital pollution – Grrrrrrr!
There is nothing quite as satisfying as watching a log go quite after executing something like.
sudo iptables -A INPUT -s NASTYIPASSRESSHEAR -j DROP
sudo iptables -A INPUT -s 10.0.0.0 -j DROP
Simple and effective!
