DenyHosts - version: 2.6
DenyHosts is a python program that automatically blocks ssh attacks by adding entries to /etc/hosts.deny. DenyHosts will also inform Linux administrators about offending hosts, attacked users and suspicious logins. Usage: /usr/sbin/denyhosts [-f logfile | --file=logfile] [ -c configfile | --config=configfile] [-i | --ignore] [-n | --noemail] [--purge] [--migrate] [--daemon] [--sync] [--version] --file: The name of log file to parse --ignore: Ignore last processed offset (start processing from beginning) --noemail: Do not send an email report --unlock: if lockfile exists, remove it and run as normal --migrate: migrate your HOSTS_DENY file so that it is suitable for --purge --purge: expire entries older than your PURGE_DENY setting --daemon: run DenyHosts in daemon mode --foreground: run DenyHosts in foreground mode --sync: run DenyHosts synchronization mode --version: Prints the version of DenyHosts and exits Note: multiple --file args can be processed. If multiple files are provided, --ignore is implied Note: in a debian system, the default running mode is daemon mode and the configuration file is etc/denyhosts.conf When run in --daemon mode the following flags are ignored: --file, --purge, --migrate, --sync, --verbose
