Dictionary Attacks

Running VShell on Windows platform. I've seen several posts in other forums about preventing brute force dictionary attacks. My logs fill every day with such attempts, some lasting for hours. When I see these, I add the offending IP to the connection filter. It would be nice, however, if VShell had the ability to recognize failed login attempts by IP address and auto-block them. Any thoughts on this feature?
