To stop SSH/FTP attacks on your router, follow this advice.

This configuration allows only 10 FTP login incorrect answers per minute

in /ip firewall filter

add chain=input protocol=tcp dst-port=21 src-address-list=ftp_blacklist action=drop \
comment="drop ftp brute forcers"

add chain=output action=accept protocol=tcp content="530 Login incorrect" dst-limit=1/1m,9,dst-address/1m

add chain=output action=add-dst-to-address-list protocol=tcp content="530 Login incorrect" \
address-list=ftp_blacklist address-list-timeout=3h


This will prevent a SSH brute forcer to be banned for 10 days after repetitive attempts. Change the timeouts as necessary.
