Jose,

   Two ways to minimize, even avoid, that problem. 1) edit ssh_config to deny
root login and 2) change the ssh port in sshd_config to some number > 20000.

   When I had ssh on port 22 the daily logwatch report showed hundreds to
thousands of cracking attempts per day. Since I changed it to a very high
port number there are none.

   Now, the Web is a different story; that's more of a people problem.
