Hi, all,

Yesterday about noon UTC the logs on one of my servers show a concerted
attack to ssh into the system.  The attacks came from multiple IP
addresses from China (a Class A range but everything was in the
255.255.255.0 subnet).  This lasted for about 20 minutes before the
server shut them down.

Daily I see people trying to break into the system either via SSH or
POP3/IMAP accounts, but this is the first such dedicated attempt I've
seen.  Has anyone else seen such activity?
