SSH scanning on the rise. DENYHOSTS
DenyHosts blocked 44 new ssh user scanning hosts in the last 13 hours. That is a lot.
Normally days with >5 new hosts caught by my lone sensor are remarkable, it happens not more often then 4 times a month. This month has been truly busy however. July 1st 10 new addresses, July 3rd 14, where in the whole month of June there where 2 days with >5 [6 & 8 on the 28th & 30th. A busy month globally] with a grant total of 28 for the whole month.
Nothing advanced either, like the botnet-like scanning in May.
This is for those hosts who made it to the largest blacklist of all times.
