'abck' 2.2 is released at:


Several new and nifty features/options since the last release (1.99).

'abck' is a Python program designed to manage attack attempts on your Unix
machine.  It examines the contents of /var/log/messages for evidence
of an intrusion attempt.  When it finds such a record, it helps you
determine the source and allows you to send email to the system
administrator in the responsible domain.

'abck' was written for and tested on FreeBSD 4.6R, but it should be
easily adapted to Linux or one of the other *nix platforms.

Upgrade to the FreeBSD port has also been submitted.
