Hi Everyone;

I have a SQL Server Instance on it there are around 2500 databases and around 2500 SQL logins are there and each loagin mapped to each database. and each login in bind with windows Account Locked Out Policy. and my Instance on Public Network so lots of Hackers try guess the user name and password.

Lets a scenario

I have a SQL Server Login and the login is bind with windows Account Locked Out Policy. If some one tries to enter wrong password 5 Times then the SQL Login will be Locked Out. I would like to interested to know can I get the alert (by SQL mail) from SQL server for this activity by using Login Trigger or any other way

I was testing ok Login Trigger on Server like below it is working fine if ALTER, CREATE, DROP cmd performes but not work if Login Locked Out:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
CREATE TRIGGER [NotifyLoginOperation_Trigger]
ON ALL SERVER
FOR ALTER_LOGIN,CREATE_LOGIN,DROP_LOGIN
AS
Declare @data xml
Declare @DBName as varchar(256)
Declare @LoginName as varchar(256)
Declare @EventType as varchar(100)
Declare @TSQL as nvarchar(2000)
Declare @strBody As varchar(max)
Declare @strSubject As varchar(max)

SET @Data = EVENTDATA()
SET @DBName = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/DatabaseName)[1]', 'varchar(256)')
SET @LoginName = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/LoginName)[1]', 'varchar(256)')
SET @EventType = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/EventType)[1]', 'varchar(100)')
SET @TSQL = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/TSQLCommand/CommandText)[1]', 'nvarchar(2000)')

SET @strSubject= @EventType + ' cmd performed on ' + @DBName + ' by user ' + @LoginName + ' on Server xyz'

SET @strBody= @TSQL

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'Profile',
@recipients = 'EmailAddress',
@subject = @strSubject,
@body = @strBody,
@body_format = 'HTML'

GO


ENABLE TRIGGER [NotifyLoginOperation_Trigger] ON ALL SERVER
GO

how about setting up a SQLAgent alert?

If there is a failed login attempt that will write an error 18456 to the errorlog, you could alert on that and get it to respond by emailing you.

An incorrect password will have a state of 9 in the error message.

Create job - Alert-LoginFailureDetected

This job executes the stored procedure 'usp_AlertLoginFailed' when the alert is triggered. After calling the stored procedure, the variable @SendAlert returns the value 'YES' when an e-mail needs to be sent.

Job Name: Alert-LoginFailureDetected--
DECLARE @SendAlert char(3)
DECLARE @iTimeRangeInSeconds int

SET @iTimeRangeInSeconds = 3600


-- Get the last time the alert message was sent
DECLARE @dtLastRun datetime
SELECT top 1 @dtLastRun =
CAST(CAST(run_date AS char(8)) + ' ' + -- Convert run_date to DateTime data type
STUFF(STUFF( -- Insert : into Time
RIGHT('000000' + -- Add leading Zeros
CAST(run_time AS varchar(6)) ,6) , 3, 0, ':'), 6, 0, ':') AS datetime)
FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobs A, msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory B
WHERE A.job_id = B.job_id AND B.run_status = 1
AND A.name = 'Alert-LoginFailureDetected-Send-Alert'
ORDER BY 1 DESC

-- Check if the last alert sent was within the specified time frame
SELECT 'Job Last Run Date', @dtLastRun

IF @dtLastRun is null OR
dateadd(s, -@iTimeRangeInSeconds, current_timestamp ) > @dtLastRun
BEGIN

EXEC admin.dbo.usp_AlertLoginFailed
@iFailureCount=3,
@iTimeRangeInSeconds=@iTimeRangeInSeconds ,
@SendAlert=@SendAlert OUTPUT

SELECT '*** SendAlert=' + @SendAlert
IF @SendAlert='YES'
BEGIN
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_start_job N'Alert-LoginFailureDetected-Send-Alert'
WAITFOR DELAY '00:00:15' -- Give Send Alert a chance to finish
END

END

ELSE
BEGIN
SELECT '*** Alert Message recently sent. No more checks will be made until ',
dateadd(s, @iTimeRangeInSeconds, @dtLastRun )
END

 Parameters:

* @iFailureCount - Send e-mail when this number of login failures occurred within the specified time range.
* @iTimeRangeInSeconds - It has two uses. First, it specifies how many seconds in the past to check for login failures. Second, after sending an e-mail, update the alert setting "delay between responses" to this value. The alert will then wait for the specified number of seconds before responding to additional login failures.
* @EmailRecipients - List each e-mail address that will receive the message and separate each address by a comma.
* @SendAlert - This variable returns the value "YES" after sending an e-mail. Use this variable to execute other stored procedures or jobs in response to repeated login failures.



Create Job - Alert-LoginFailureDetected-Send-Alert --

This job is started by the job 'Alert-LoginFailureDetected' when an e-mail needs to be sent to the DBA team alerting them of repeated login failures. The SQL contains the e-mail stored procedures used for both SQL Server 2000 and 2005. Delete the one you do not need. Set the variable @EmailRecipients to your DBA teams e-mail address.

PRINT ' High number of failed login alerts detected'
DECLARE @EmailRecipients varchar(255)
DECLARE @vcSubject varchar(255)
DECLARE @vcMessage varchar(255)


SET @EmailRecipients = 'myteam@yourdomain.com'
SET @vcSubject = @@ServerName + ': High Volume of login Failure Alerts Detected'
SET @vcMessage = 'Please check the event logs for the user login that attempted to login.'

PRINT 'Alert E-mail sent '

-- Stored procedure used in SQL Server 2005
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'Default',
@recipients = @EmailRecipients,
@subject = @vcSubject,
@Body =@vcMessage

-- Stored procedure used in SQL Server 2000
EXEC admin.dbo.usp_cdosendmail
@From =@@SERVERNAME,
@To =@EmailRecipients,
@Subject =@vcSubject,
@Body =@vcMessage

Hope this helps...
