    Or it's my impression?

    Please, take a look at my System Messages log.


    Thanks,

    I changed SSH port to another, different from 22.

    What I didn´t like AT ALL is that one of the attacks was done by serverpronto.com!!!

    ServerPronto are a hosting provider, so it's likely that the unwanted attention is coming from one of their client's servers - which has quite possibly been compromised and is being used as platform from which to try to "crack" other servers.

    I suggest that you consider installing Chirpy's Firewall package

    http://www.configserver.com/cp/csf.html

    which will catch repeated login failures to SSH, POP3, FTP, etc and automatically block access from the remote host.

    I guess you're right. Maybe it wasn't serverpronto...

    I know Chirpy's Firewall is a good product, but my provider says the server is well protected and I shouldn't install another firewall.

    If you are on a managed system, then you should direct your concerns with the administrator. Making changes without their knowledge may cause them problems later.
