[Firehol-support] fail2ban

i don't know this package specifically, but a quick look at the site 
indicates that it should work independently of firehol.

ie firehol sets up the initial firewall rules and then a product like 
fail2ban monitors logs and temporarily disables access from ip's that 
show agressive deviant behaviour.

note that just because you get attacked from an ip doesn't mean you want 
a permanent ban. there may be other users behind a firewall at that 
address or indeed the attackers could be spoofing the source ip to 
create a dos attack on your machine.
