Install fail2ban

/etc/fail2ban/jail.conf

Code:
#
# FTP servers
#

[pure-ftpd]

enabled  = true
port     = ftp
filter   = pure-ftpd
logpath  = /var/log/messages
maxretry = 3
/etc/fail2ban/filter.d/pure-ftpd.conf

Code:
failregex = pure-ftpd(?:\[\d+\])?: \(.+?@<HOST>\) \[WARNING\] %(__errmsg)s \[.+\]$
Restart your fail2ban

Default Is this really an attack?

Has someone been trying to exploit something I have left open? I am getting this message on my box . . .

I guess someone is trying to log into your FTP account. You should install fail2ban to block these attempts.

Default It is installed . . .

I got fail2ban installed, but I am seeing a line already in this file:

/etc/fail2ban/filter.d/pure-ftpd.conf

similar to the one in this link. This is what it states:


failregex = pure-ftpd(?:\[\d+\])?: \(.+?@<HOST>\) \[WARNING\] %(__errmsg)s \[.+\]\s*$


It is slightly different . . . should I leave it in or remove it and replace it?

If you don't see any errors in the fail2ban log in the /var/log/ directory, leave it as it is.
