I setup an email server a couple of months ago.

The amount of port scans and brute force attacks I've received this month alone is awful.

JUST SOD OFF ALREADY, PLEASE.

    Had this same issue. Do you have fail2ban installed?

    @herrybiscuit Not at the moment, postfix is doing quite well at stopping then for the moment (I think) but I need to at some point.

    I'm not a server guy so this is all very new 😛

    @Jamoyjamie Please install Fail2Ban. I myself would have been a victim of a mail bomb and could have prevented it. And monitor your mail queue. If this is very high, someone uses your mail server

    Things like these are why I prefer to use AWS. You don't have to worry about all that, you just do what you got to do, and let them handle the rest.

    @linuxxx I was wondering which Linux distro you prefer for personal use?

    @linuxxx cool, m experimenting with fedora at the moment!

    @yendenikhil I've used fedora for a while myself! Love the system only it uses quite some resources for me :/

    @linuxxx just starting to learn the Linux administration basics (we gotta manage our infra stack ourselves in few months time), interesting and overwhelming!

    I find understanding of concepts is what I need to learn a lot, commands are easy part! (Understanding network interface can be rabbit hole, damn)

    Got more respect of sysadmins and curiosity about Linux (more than just preferred os)

    @yendenikhil What basics are you learning exactly and what concepts do you mean? :D

    In the mean time I'm installing two new vps's on my second dedicated server 😅
