Exclamation Problem: periodic script 800.loginfail

Something to be aware of if you're running FBSD 6.3 or 7.0. The security script /etc/periodic/security/800.loginfail appears to currently be broken.

The short explanation is that there is an egrep expression in the script that is incorrect. For more details, see open PR conf/120263. Included in that PR is a proposed fix, which you may choose to do manually if the script's output is important to you (it is to me).

i believe that this output is one of the most important from the server.
based on this you can do all sort of graphs and see how many attacks the box suffered the last day.

all the best,
