If you mean the ones that have been much publicised recently, those have been
brute force attacks against passwords. That's not an attack, it's just a
silly waste of time nuisance that fills up your log. Just don't use bad
passwords and you'll be safe against that particular "attack"

If you mean something else, I'd like to know about it, so please give me a
link where I can read about it
