Bruteblock allows system administrators to block various bruteforce attacks on UNIX services. The program analyzes system logs and adds attackers' IP addresses into the ipfw2 table, effectively blocking them. Addresses are automatically removed from the table after specified amount of time. Bruteblock uses regular expressions to parse logs, which gives it enough flexibility to be used with almost any network service. Bruteblock doesn't use any external programs and works with ipfw2 tables via the raw sockets API.
MultiLoad is a load balancer that redirects HTTP requests to pre-defined servers/locations. It gives the provider a way to balance the traffic and hides the real download location. It allows you to manage different version of each download. It is also a load balancing server extension. You can distribute files on some servers so that a downloaded file can be loaded form different servers. These servers can have different priorities to control the active traffic.
