Adam, he's not pointing a gun :). The better analogy would be that he's put a sick dog standing by his door, and someone tries to OPEN them not just knock. Kiddie tries few keys and then dog starts to barf at him. If that would be a normal ssh client, he'd come clean, but since it's a script kiddie - well... If someone tries to root access via ssh on every IP - that's not knocking, that's like checking all my doors. -- -=[ Lukasz C. Jokiel ]=- | Klonex VCS, Zbozowa 27, 45-837 Opole.
