    These are quite normal and nothing to really worry about if you use a long password which consists of chars in upper and lowercase and numbers. These attacks occur to internet servers all day long.

    You can use fail2ban to stop such attacks after a few failed login attempts by blocking the attacker automatically on network level.


    So he did stop quite fast, such attachs may last hours or even days.
