    iptables or hosts.deny

    Just wondering, if someone was attempting to brute force root/shh what is the better way for blocking the the offending IP#`s?

    iptables or hosts.deny?

    I have BFD installed, but of course it won`t block everyone that is attempting a brute force. Sometimes there could be hundreds of attempts before the cron runs BFD again.
