    I have set up FTP access on my server. I have a username / password set up for logging in, and the access is read-only (MP3’s I have stored for some friends currently in Iraq). In checking my log files, I get what appears to be a bot attempting to login to the site.

    Example

    00:27:23 219.117.223.235 [3]USER adam 331 0
    00:27:23 219.117.223.235 [3]USER adam 331 0
    00:27:25 219.117.223.235 [3]PASS – 530 1326
    00:27:27 219.117.223.235 [3]USER adam 331 0
    00:27:29 219.117.223.235 [4]USER adam 331 0
    00:27:29 219.117.223.235 [4]USER adam 331 0
    00:27:31 219.117.223.235 [4]PASS – 530 1326

    In doing an WHOIS search, I can see it’s someone in Asia, most likely a hacker. What can I do to restrict this? I can see that they get access, and slow down my system quite a bit. Short of blocking each IP individually, is there an option?
