Dictionary Login Attack

It’s quite interesting to read through the system logs… well, not all the log entries but relevant portions thereof. Today, I found the following entries:

Jan 18 23:05:16 ... nslcd... "deutch": user not found
Jan 18 23:05:19 ... nslcd... "german": user not found
Jan 18 23:05:22 ... nslcd... "hitler": user not found
Jan 18 23:05:25 ... nslcd... "deutchland": user not found

Not that inventive these user names. However, it’s really irritating to see what some people think German user names look like. I wonder what kind of person chose them and the typos :)
