SSHGuard

sshguard protects hosts from brute-force attacks against SSH and other services. It aggregates system logs and blocks repeat offenders using one of several firewall backends.

If you are building from Git, run this first:

autoreconf -i

Then, build it like a normal source distribution:

./configure
make && make install

Usage
