So I am getting hit by ssh bots like crazy. It seems that they have
discovered my ssh server.  Anywho, while they are not getting in, they
are killing my bandwidth.  There is this article I found that after 15
failed attempts it adds your ip to a block list.  While this sounds like
a great solution, it is based on BSD.  Does anyone know of a linux solution?
