Stuck. Need help with SSH/OpenSSH/Console
I'm in one hell of a pickle. I am completely new to all of this. I'm using digital ocean to host my social engine website. We hired a "programmer" to build the site for us and set everything up. As it turns out, he actually knew less than me. Recently I've been experiencing what I believe to be a SSH Brute Force attack. My site keeps crashing because of failed login attempts from random emails and IP's. I created a Digital Ocean support ticket but all I got was tutorials and step by step guides on how to set up SSH keys and stuff like that. I followed everything, i'm just very confused and the attacks are still happening. How do I stop this? I'm using my console from my Digital Ocean droplet but apparently that's wrong? I think I downloaded OpenSSH but i'm not sure how to access it. Please....any help will be greatly appreciated.
