Probably a so-called "script kiddie" running a script that (if
unchecked) attempts scores of brute force logins over a short period
of time. I have a daemon running on my Linux server that watches for
these attempts and blocks them after a few tries, and I've logged
attacks from over a hundred distinct IPs just in the past few weeks.
