SED to add a suffix

Hi all,

Im trying to make a proper hosts.allow with the lists of sshbl.org to block the ssh brute force attackers.

The list is a text file with an IP on every line.
What I've gotten up sofar is to prefix "sshd : " on every line, but I need a " : deny" suffix behind every line as well.
How can I do this? I've made the part that is unknown to me underlined.
Code sofar:
Code:
#!/usr/local/bin/bash
rm /tmp/base.txt
fetch -o /tmp/base.txt http://www.sshbl.org/lists/base.txt
rm /tmp/base.tmp
cat /tmp/base.txt | grep '[0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9][.][0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9][.][0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9]' | sed 's/^/sshd : /' > /tmp/base.tmp
cat /tmp/base.tmp | grep '[0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9][.][0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9][.][0-9]*[0-9]*[0-9]' | sed 's/???/ : deny /' > /tmp/base.tmp2
rm /etc/hosts.allow
cp /tmp/base.tmp2 /etc/hosts.allow
cat /root/SSHBL/hosts.allow >> /etc/hosts.allow

Thx for the help.

Using the first few lines as example:
Code:
$ cat base.txt
# sshbl.org
# Thu Jan 28 11:45:02 2010 CET
#
# source ip
61.155.177.2
217.120.162.182
60.191.5.181
88.77.54.74
210.21.225.204
174.34.172.133
109.123.74.86
$ awk '!/^#/{print "sshd : "$0" : deny"}' base.txt
sshd : 61.155.177.2 : deny
sshd : 217.120.162.182 : deny
sshd : 60.191.5.181 : deny
sshd : 88.77.54.74 : deny
sshd : 210.21.225.204 : deny
sshd : 174.34.172.133 : deny
sshd : 109.123.74.86 : deny

That ok?

In case anyone cares, I added a different output, since the above command did the output to stdout instead of a file.
Here is the entire script:
Code:
#!/usr/local/bin/bash
rm /tmp/base.txt
fetch -o /tmp/base.txt http://www.sshbl.org/lists/base.txt
rm /tmp/base.tmp
awk '!/^#/{print "sshd : "$0" : deny"}' /tmp/base.txt > /tmp/base.tmp
rm /etc/hosts.allow
cp /tmp/base.tmp /etc/hosts.allow
cat /root/SSHBL/hosts.allow >> /etc/hosts.allow

However, you can get quite a bit of better security by blocking these IPs with a firewall (pf or iptables) and/or moving the SSH port away from the default 22.

Hey Pludi,

Yeah I know, I always ran ssh @ 22222, but from some locations the tcp 22222 outbound was blocked, while 22 wasn't.
Im still working to migrate from the IPFW to PF as firewall, since PF can use these kind of files as input for firewall rules.
I also run sshguard-ipfw which puts an attacker in the IPFW firewall when guessing usernames.
So this hosts.allow is just an extra Smilie
Thx for the advice/thinking with me though!

I know 2 utilities against brute-force attacks (and aother attacks)
1. denyhosts : acts on /etc/hosts.deny.
2. fail2ban : acts on iptables.
Search a bit around about those 2 and you'll find which you prefer.

Hi Frans,

I'm using sshguard already, quite simulair to fail2ban, but it can be used for more services then only sshd.
Thx for your advice though!
