[ale] What's the utility to shut out hackers/viri attempting sshd attacks?



I had a bunch of attempts on one of my machines from something like 6
different countries.  A simple solution is to change your hosts.allow file
to only point to networks you might use.  I.e.

/etc/hosts.allow
ssh: 192. myother.net

/etc/hosts.den
ssh: all

You could also do this in your firewall or any other number of places, but
this is probably the quickest.
