An open SSH port means SSH attacks

If your Internet-connected computer accepts SSH connections, chances are half the planet is trying to get in to hax0r you -- literally.  Using Zeemaps and IP geolocation, we can easily plot the values on a Zeemaps.

I'm just kidding about Eric Rizzo..  But Eric, if that is you, don't count on me for free beer at EclipseCon  :)

Hey, I live on the west coast of Florida - I left Miami 10 years ago to escape the organized crime hax0r rings there!
Seriously, I'd bet a lot of those attempts are coming from compromised PCs in botnets and the owners don't even know they're haxing.
