Well, I think the latter. If you have an up-to-date system with
up-to-date packages, you should not be too much worried, I think
brute-force is useless if one uses strong passwords. I'd check auth-log
and the output of last(1) if that says something, but you can never be
sure. So I'd say just be happy, that they stopped trying, but don't give
up the regular maintainence so that your system be as secure as it can
Oh, and you can try port-knocking as well to secure the sshd port. If
you don't know what it is, just google for it.
