Yes, fail2ban is a very clean way of banning those idiots. I implemented this on my mail server as I was getting spam botnet attacks and it was eating up my smtp server. However, installing this beauty and configuring it to ban using iptables has stopped that from happening. If you need something like this, I suggest you try it out!
