sucessor for denyhosts?




Hi folks,

looks like "denyhosts" is nol more in the repos. I like this tool, because it 
blocks the IP, when the wrong password is sent n-times.

The blocked IP is added into /etc/hosts.deny, which IMO is a great idea.

I am using a script, which, cleares the hosts.deny after a certain time, but 
this is just my behaviour.

My question: which successor for denyhost do you suggest. I found sshguard, 
which looks promising, but maybe you got a better tool, which is similar to 
denyhosts.

Happy hacking!
