ssh and stupid would be (windows ?) hacker
« on: September 16, 2005, 10:24:05 AM »
This is pretty amusing.

I left one of my servers up last night, and had ssh open (had a friend using my sftp server). ONE NIGHT!!

So when I wake up and look in the logs I see the below:

I think the above quote says enough by itself. Will be interesting to see who else will try this. I wonder if it's a script or what ...

Oh well. It's to be expected. But it's always amusing when the person is just trying random login names (whether they exist on other OS's or not).
