Denyhosts for sshd – usernames dictionary

2 Feb 2012

I’ve just setup the venerable denyhosts on one of my servers, to stop the usual script-kiddies from filling up my logs (I’m not particularly worried about them getting in.).

Anyway, here is restricted-usernames.gz, a list of denied usernames from the log – handy to add to your denyhosts restricted-usernames file. There’s probably a better dictionary of usernames out there – I’ll attach it if I find it stumble upon it.
