I am confused by this report.

In it he says that he put "2001" into /etc/hosts.deny.  He then states
that he looked at "hosts.deny", presumably "/etc/hosts.deny" and it is
different, "ssh: 2001".  What changed the contents of that file?
Besides, "2001" could be considered equivalent to a Class A IPv4
address.  Does he really want to block all of 2001?
