Re: Stopping SSH dictionary attacks?



Just did a quick grep on my authlog(s) going back to Oct 23rd, and came
up with this list of names being used (sort'ed & uniq'ed):
> account
> adam
> adm
> admin
> alan
> anonymous
> apache
> backup
> cip51
> cip52
> cosmin
> cyrus
> data
> frank
> george
> guest
> henry
> horde
> iceuser
> irc
> jane
> jenny
> john
> jordan
> master
> matt
> mysql
> noc
> oracle
> pamela
> patrick
> rolo
> server
> sybase
> test
> user
> web
> webmaster
> www-data
> wwwrun

A pretty funny list really, I wonder what they used to come up with some
of the more esoteric names?
