Just to be clear, it's basically tailing the file, not rereading it every 
10 sec. You can change the checking interval by changing $interval. I 
doubt there'd be a problem with 1 second. :) $threshold = 1 should be fine 
too. ;)

Part of the reason I liked hosts.deny vs iptables is because I like being 
able to use the same script on many different types of host, many of which 
don't have iptables available.

Shell script is cute though. :)
