    I'm curious how others handle the flurry of messages in the secure log concerning remote IPs that band on SSH using either cleartext or weak ciphers. Just this morning, I had a remote IP try to connect about 1,500 times in a little over an hour. Roughly 20% of my log file lines have to do with this issue. I would like to be able to ban IPs after they reach a threshold. I'm thinking of installing fail2ban to deal with this issue, but I am curious to hear what everyone has to say.

    Thanks,
