fail2ban is a script for limiting bruteforce intrusions ClearOS has added this module in the OS particularly focusing on SSHD attacks calling it "attack detector" however after checking the logs it does not stop them but merely logs them. To make this module effective open a terminal and edit the "jail.conf" file located at:

/etc/fail2ban/jail.conf

add a line under [sshd]:

maxretry = 3

then restart the service with: service fail2ban restart
