1 week into the month…

..and the bots are going crazy:
-bash-3.2# cat /var/log/secure | grep "Failed password" | wc -l
72595

72 thousand invalid password attempts (most of those are against root, although theres a lot for <random 5 character usernames>).

Thats 10,000 a day, about one every 10 seconds..
