Dear Lazyweb, how secure is Tomato?

Reposted from blog.krow.net

So today I noticed on one of my internal servers the following:

Jul 17 23:53:13 localhost sshd[31847]: Invalid user sales from

Jul 17 23:53:13 localhost sshd[31848]: input_userauth_request: invalid user sales

And I also see….

Jul 17 23:47:11 localhost sshd[31690]: reverse mapping checking getaddrinfo for 42.ac.84ae.static.theplanet.com [] failed - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!


Jul 20 14:56:01 localhost ¿<28>fail2ban.actions: WARNING [ssh-iptables] Ban

Huh? Nothing is port forwarded, and the only thing that could be connecting to the box is a Linksys running 1.28 Tomato.

So I am wondering, is Tomato secure right now?
