    Out-of-the-box security for Remote Deskop, Exchange, OWA, SharePoint, CRM, generic IIS applications and many other server systems.

    Discontinued

    Software has been set open-source and abandoned by the main developer. Seems a very good detector but fails to successfully stop attacks. When I have it set to block IPs after 5 failed attempts I shouldn't see multiple entries showing 300 attempts by the same IP addresses.

  5. Denyhosts icon

    Denyhosts

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Linux

    The idea of denying access to SSH servers is nothing new and I was inspired by many other scripts that I discovered. However, none of them did things the way I envisioned them to. Also, they were all shell scripts which do not offer the elegance of Python.
