This attack goes on for maybe 20 pages like this, maybe more.

I've banned the address, but it seems like there should be some way for the software to detect these thousands of failed usernames and passwords and just automatically ban the guy.

Hi,

You would need Professional or Enterprise versions which provides the security option for "Abuse detection and prevention".

Thanks Ian.

I solved this by writing a little utility that auto-bans these hackers. You can find it in the Developers forum.
(Works with Standard Edition)
