             hosts.deny and hosts.allow are part of TCP wrappers. AFAIK, you
    have to build ssh with support for it, to use these files.

             The ssh "attacks" are part of a "script-kit" or worm trying to
    break in through weak passwords and/or older ssh (v1). These attacks are
    filling up the logs that is for sure. :(
