I am configuring vsftpd for a project. Anonymous logins are not
allowed, only virtual users. I have had the server up for a total of
two days, and periodically get slammed with repeated login attempts.
They appear to be automated because the logs show three login fails then
a new connect seconds later. Here are my questions:
Does anyone know of a directive that will cause a connect to be refused
after a max_login_fail is hit? I don't want a total lockout, but if I
could have connections refused for say, five minutes, that might inspire
a bot to go away and bother someone else.
Aside from my logs growing insanely, do I need to worry about this behavior?
Thanks for any thoughs
