Another way to monitor the listener log for brute force attacks

December 16th, 2005 by Pete

Today I saw a post on my Oracle security forum titled "Re: Detecting brute forcing listener password" where Ron has posted a great solution to the issue of monitoring the listener log file for brute force attempts. He has shown a very simple example of using swatch to monitor the log and also to send alerts when password errors are found. Great, very simple, very useful example.
