Fail2Ban handles multiple attackers just dandy, and can even look them up for you in whois and send a nice email somewhere for tracking or safekeeping.

comment Hardening a financially critical Windows computer
I'd rather bug the bank to disable the feature, send me a keyfob that generates real time passwords, or find another bank. HSBC in Australia and Fortis in Belgium uses keyfobs at no charge to the customer and on ordinary consumer accounts noless.

comment Open source scripting log analysis: tools for breaking stderr log messages into groups (normal bugs vs abnormal) or looking at trends (we're getting less of this message and more of that one)
As a commercial product, this might be ok. I see they have a 'free' licensed version and a paid version. But is there a free, GPL version?

comment How To Automatically Login To Ubuntu On Amazon's EC2 Service?
The phrase 'log onto' begs the question 'with what?'. The what and where matter. There can be a terminology conflict or gap, too. You can log onto a Ubuntu box at the console or remotely. Remotely the methods available include telnet, ssh, rdp/vnc, and perhaps NX (I've never used NX). Some of these methods serve text only, some graphics, some both. With Ubuntu you can create a passwordless machine that anyone can log into -- its possible -- but as you say noone should want to. There are also ways to bypass entering the password for a user at the console, or as I showed above, over ssh.

comment Using RSYNC with Amazon S3
How do you suppose they "load" a 128Gb flash drive? I picture the world's largest usb hub, a floor to ceiling patch panel of USB connectors, 3/4 full of customer supplied flash drives, all going into the back of a single blade server.

If there is no user or password, what keeps an intruder from accessing your desktops?

"They will have a hard time trying to find someone who can replace you" -- now is that a bad reason to do it or a good reason?
