The version 0.4.1 of Fail2Ban is available.

This version contains only a bug fix in textToDNS and a more readable
configuration file. A initd script for Gentoo is also available.

I would really appreciate initd scripts for others distributions.

"Fail2Ban is written in Python. It scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail
or /var/log/apache/error_log and bans IP that makes too many password
failures. It updates firewall rules to reject the IP address."
