Re: Login attacks

In september I had some of these from colleges in the US.
They were appreciative of the notification and removed the machine off the net until it was cleaned.

But the stuff coming from China.... Forget it.

I get attacks like these just about every other day. I maintain servers for several networks... And there always seems to be one of them somewhere that is getting probed.

I see attempts about every other day. Because of this, I send e-mails to

ISPs about every other day.

Ok, this brings up a question I have.  I, too, have emailed the responsible
parties for the offending addresses.  Korea and China usually are the
countries from which the IP addresses are allocated.  Has ANYONE ever
received a  reply back?  I never have.  I am beginning to suspect that the
attacks are done with the tacit approval of those networks.
