[cross-project-issues-dev] SSH attacks against our servers


The Eclipse servers have been experiencing unusually high amounts of SSH attack attempts. Lately, waves of distributed attacks have hit our servers in relatively short periods. In the last 24 hours, a few dozen distinct IP subnets were blocked by our inner firewalls as a result of suspected attack behaviour.

Please note that our inner firewall does *not* protect project vservers (it does protect the server, though). If your vserver has an open port to SSH, you are responsible for your own system's security. Should your vserver become compromised from a successful intrusion, our only intervention will be to terminate it and provision you with a new vserver.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for taking steps to ensure your vservers are protected.
