I run a server at home on port 22.
There are loads of illegal user attempts to login
every few days. As its at home I protect myself
by having only one user on the sshd AllowUsers
list and with a very strong password and no
So essentially every failed login attempt is illegal.
Is there any way to actually record what passwords
the hackers' scripts are trying? I am just really intrigued
to know what they are thinking might work.
I realize that it's not normally appropriate to log people's
passwords but in my case I am literally the only user
who will ever legitimately login to my machine
