Hmmm... Home server is getting hit by a very aggressive SSH botnet right now.

The interesting thing is, this is coming mostly from the USA, especially Digital Ocean and CenturyLink, and not from China, as I got used to before.

Kind of unusual, really.


@ParadeGrotesque Have you reported abuse with DigitalOcean? I'm not sure about CenturyLink, but I know DO has a form for reporting IPs

I have danced that abuse tango before and nothing good ever came out of it.

Some bot machines get pulled out and reappear 10 minutes later.

Even though automating that abuse report could be interesting... 🤔

To be fair, they don't do anything... like 99% of all other hosters.
