Fedora 11 Update: fail2ban-0.8.3-22.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-9103
2009-08-28 21:16:42
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : fail2ban
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.8.3
Release     : 22.fc11
URL         : http://fail2ban.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Ban IPs that make too many password failures
Description :
Fail2ban scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail or
/var/log/apache/error_log and bans IP that makes too many password
failures. It updates firewall rules to reject the IP address.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update redirects fail2ban's log to syslog. This also fixes and issue with
logrotate purging banned clients. fail2ban also checks inodes instead of just
the first line of a logfile.    There is development code to address the broken
compatibility with python 2.6 in this update. W/o this fail2ban is useless on
F11 and newer.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
