Thanks for your response everyone. I was quite nervous about this yesterday.
I have a complex password and always disable direct root access. On all my boxes, home & dedicated. Some people have recommended changing the ssh port, is this worth it?
I found out it is one of RapidSwitch's monitoring servers, so I have now unblocked it from my firewall. They should publish this information to their clients so we know to ignore anything from their IPs.
While looking through my secure logs I have noticed an other IP which seems to be going to town with quite a few attempts at logging in per minute, and I have confirmed with RapidSwitch it is not any of theirs - so I might post back a bit of the log file, as the log file show something slightly different in reference to their log in attemp.
OpenSource is the road ahead...!
