It appears to be a Chinese IP. While, I am using the default port, I have 'PermitRootLogin' set to 'no' and 'Protocol' set to '2'.

This is my first time dealing with something like this, so needless to say I disabled SSH, and I'm not quite sure what to do next.

Re: Should I be worried about this?

While it's certainly not good, it's not something that's particularly uncommon. That looks fairly similar both of my file servers (both have ssh enabled). It sounds like you've done the smart/obvious thing of disabling remote root login. At this point, I would make sure you have strong remote login credentials and would blacklist the IP with iptables.

Re: Should I be worried about this?

I don't know.  Are your passwords strong?

This is a very typical attack.  I see several of them per day. 

You have a few choices.
1. Use strong passwords
2. Use a program such as fail2ban to manipulate iptables to block brute force attacks
3. Use SSH Keys and disable password logins

Note:  Fail2ban currently requires that you use a conventional logging utility such as syslog-ng.  See the this article on using syslog with systemd.

Re: Should I be worried about this?

Thank you for the responses!

I didn't know this wasn't out of the ordinary. In fact, going back through the logs, I see it happening on a couple other occasions with no access given. I feel I have a secure password, though that won't stop me from making up a better one. I'll also get right on looking at fail2ban, iptables and SSH Key use.

Is there anything my paranoid self can do to make sure nothing's compromised? Besides nuking the disk and reinstalling?

Re: Should I be worried about this?

Just make sure that access was not granted.  You can also install and use a root-kit sniffer.  Although not perfect, it may give a warm and fuzzy.

ewaller@odin:~ 1002 %pacman -Ss rootkit
extra/chkrootkit 0.49-3 [installed]
    Locally checks for signs of a rootkit
community/rkhunter 1.4.0-1
    Checks machines for the presence of rootkits and other unwanted tools.
community/unhide 20110113-3
    A forensic tool to find processes hidden by rootkits, LKMs or by other techniques.
ewaller@odin:~ 1003 %

Edit:  BTW, chkrootkit currently gives a FALSE positive with systemd:

Re: Should I be worried about this?

More generally, asking this question now suggests you didn't really put much thought into your decision to expose your ssh service over the internet. There is copious documentation about this subject, and there's also common sense - you should use both.

Excellent, and thanks for the heads up with systemd.

Your right, I didn't. Exposing my computer to the internet began with the 'want' to stream MPD. The SSH idea came later. I admit I didn't read a whole lot into the security as I ran with what I had already read/done to protect myself. Though I didn't expect random access attempts like this. It was dumb, but this time it's part of a learning experience.
