[tor-talk] SSH connection attempts through hidden service



Hi,

I'm running a SSH hidden service on some machines. Recently I was quite
surprised to find the following lines in my logs:

Aug  5 17:06:37 linux sshd[23935]: input_userauth_request: invalid user root [preauth]
Aug  5 17:06:51 linux sshd[23935]: Disconnecting: Too many authentication failures for root [preauth]

Nobody besides me knowns the onion name. But the person who ran those
tests tried user names like tor, hidden etc.

Has anyone also seen such connection attempts through hidden services?
