SSH port stats update

So in a previous post we looked at attempts to brute force my SSHd at home for the duration of a week. Lets see the monthly statistics now to get a wide picture of situation.

The top countries changed a bit with Hong Kong getting the first spot and bumping China to 2nd, while France came out of nowhere to 3rd place bumping Turkey and Russia a spot down!



 From a single persistent IP perspective, China came first and Hong-Kong second with France keeping the 3rd place.



From a username aspect, root monopolised the charts once again with admin trailing miles behind, simply put... if you leave PermitRootLogin as "yes" in sshd_config.. you are responsible for your own demise


The attacker volume is quite erratic yet we can surely see a drop around the weekends... even hackers have to clock out I guess!



Lastly the map has not changed much other than France overtaking pretty much everyone except China and Hong Kong!



Hope you enjoyed that :)

Stay tuned for more
