- Am I experiencing a brute force attack? 8 answers
I am having a lot of failed ssh authentication requests for the past two days, from various service providers. It seems somebody is intent on breaking into my computer.
I am using Ubuntu on a Dell laptop, I need to have sshd running for work purposes, so shutting it off is not an option.
I blocked all the ips off for the moment, and crippled the attack. What is the best response to such a situation?
