      Fail2ban scans log files (e.g. /var/log/apache/error_log) and bans IPs that show the malicious signs -- too many password failures, seeking for exploits, etc.
    1. SSHGuard monitors services through their logging activity. It reacts to messages about dangerous activity by blocking the source address with the local firewall.

    2. A FREE and open source application that allows auto banning ip addresses from failed login attempts. Many sources are watched such as SSH, SMTP, SQL-Server, MySQL, RDP and dropped packets.

    3. 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.

    4. Windows Server brute force protection for Remote Desktop (including NLA), FTP, SMTP, and much more.

      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. RdpGuard allows you to protect your Remote Desktop (RDP) from brute-force attacks by blocking attacker's IP address. Fail2Ban for Windows.

      IPQ BDB filtering is done by a user space netfilter daemon that issues verdicts after looking up the IP address in a Berkeley DB. The fuzzy blocking model, freely inspired by STOCKADE, is designed to block non-distributed dictionary attacks and mitigate spam.
