    hi all
    forever getting failed logins from lovely people trying to hack the servers (as we all do)
    set_id= shows what user name they try to access, but i was wondering is there a way to see what password they tried.
    would be usefull to know as it could be seen if it was random or old account password and possibly if they were getting close to the right one.
    my line of thinking is for example i had an account on a forum or something somewhere and i had a password of 'fred123' then all of a sudden that password was used to try and access something it would alert me to a problem somewhere.
    would not help hosts with 100's of accounts however i have a handfull only of users all of whom i know.

    Hello :)

    This is not possible, and it's not a feature that would likely ever be implemented due to the potential abuse on a compromised server.

    Thank you.
