Secure Shell login attempts

After getting the following secure shell login attempts, I’ve decided to remove winbind from my home linux boxes. It’s not a big deal as I’ve only got a few workstations and I’m not running Active Directory at home. They are all in a windows workgroup so no problems.

To remove winbind from a Ubuntu or Debian workstation, type the following.

Job done. 😀

To prevent brute force login attempts on workstations running ssh (secure shell), I would always suggest either installing fail2ban or denyhosts.
