What’s the Impact of a SSH Brute Force Attack?


“Even if the data you have isn’t compromised, there is a significant impact to the performance.”


Have you thought about what would happen if you were a victim of a SSH Brute Force Attack? How prepared are you if an attacker got admin access to your network? Do you know how sophisticated these attacks are and what you can do to mitigate your risk?

In most case, the attackers are not after your data, but rather after your server for their own purposes. Regardless of their purpose, a SSH Brute Force Attack can have a significant impact to the performance of your system. Your hosting provider can work with you to provide you with a list of steps to avoid being compromised, as well as tell you what to look for in the event that you have been compromised.
