Apache .htaccess - stop password sharing and brute forcing

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have users in website (Apache 1.3.29, Red Hat 9)-  using usual .htaccess for password and directory access.

There are lots of scripts out there. I want something to monitor access to the server to stop brute force password hacking and password sharing. Also let me see what user is logged in and where they are looking.

Just want a recommended script really. Any suggestions as there are so many?
