This is exactly what fail2ban do. It's a very nice script written in 
python that can block an IP for an amount of time after several login 
attempts. It can monitor ssh and apache. Look at 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fail2ban or directly emerge it as it is 
allready in Portage. I have it running for a couple of months and I must 
say that I'm very satisfied.
