Hey, people have been trying to brute force my ftp. Every day ill check the log and it will say stuff like:

[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:06 - (000569) Closing connection
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:07 - (000570) Connected to 58.211.58.2 (Local address 192.168.1.100)
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:08 - (000570) Too many times wrong password for user "ADMINISTRATOR" - disconnecting
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:09 - (000570) Closing connection
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:09 - (000571) Connected to 58.211.58.2 (Local address 192.168.1.100)
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:11 - (000571) Too many times wrong password for user "ADMINISTRATOR" - disconnecting
[5] Fri 04Jan08 16:57:11 - (000571) Closing connection

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to deal with this?
Thanks M

I actually didnt have an administrator account setup. I did set one up though with a simple password and no privileges in a directory with a file that says go away [in meaner terms]. So im not worried about them actually getting in, im actually surprised they haven't. its just annoying.
