Failed login reporting

Hi all,

The main amount of activity I see on my server is login attempts on SSH, and always has to do with password attempts.

I'm investigating different software I can use to effectively report such activity to providers. I guess this elusive program's features would include a log analyzer, nslookup parser, intrusion reporting to ISP, and firewall-rule appending for repeated offenses.

Can anyone recommend a cron-able script or program which handles this sort of activity?

You can use grep as shown here but better way is use logwatch the which can send an email and has lot of ther features too see

Hope this helps!
