So this morning I tried to get fail2ban set up on my server.Thus I found in the log files "some" failed attemts which were not from me. Low and behold more than three bots were trying to brute force a ssh connection within a day of uptime. smh

    @theKarlisK I guess port 420 wasn't a good idea!

    Within a day? I've had this within 5 minutes 😅

    @JFK422 i think they usually scan the first 1024 ports.

    Lol, 3 within a day? I barely managed to be the first one to ssh into my VPS, 5 minutes later the bruteforcing started
