does anybody had any idea about a software that automatically blocks a specific IP after he/she tries to access, say twice or thrice, the server using passwords? after failed accessing, it will automatically save the ip and tagged as block ip?
or if not, what other options do i have to secure a server from unwanted scripts.
Host Security / Physical Security means securing the server from unauthorized access. For that we can password protect the box with such steps as setting up a bios password, placing the computer box in a locked room where only authorized users have access, applying OS security patches, and checking logs on regular basis for any intrusion and attacks. In Host security we check and correct the permissions on all OS related files.
