Subject: [gentoo-security] SSH login attempts and /var/log/wtmp
Date: Mon, 02 Aug 2004 19:39:42
1 I have had these scans/logins attempted on one of my servers.
2 I see all the attempts for guest,admin,test in my logs.
3 They also show up when i run the command 'last'
4 to see what users obviously have last logged in and a user test
5 shows up. The log in time shows for 0 time logged in. I did not know
6 that incorrect login attempts would show in the output of the command
7 'last' or even users that don't exist on the system.
8 Maybe someone can explain what this means?
10 thanks
