We've received a few notes today about a recent increase in attempts to log in as root via ssh.

The activity graph confirms this activity as well as another spike toward the end of last month.

If you allow remote root logins (bad!), you'll want to check your systems.

I'm sure we'll here more on this topic when port 22 is discussed for Cyber Security Awareness Month
