ssh connection stopped working

Hi,

 

Up until 3:00 pm today, I was able to use ssh to connect to my site.

I have public/private keys setup, and for a couple years, they have worked fine.

 

Now, when I connect, I get the following:

 

Received disconnect from 148.72.74.233 port 22:2: Too many authentication failures for <username>
Disconnected from 148.72.74.233 port 22

 

Could someone be trying to hack the account?

Or is there something less sinister going on?

 

More importantly, how do I get ssh connections re-enabled?

(I can connect to cPanel, but I haven't found anything obvious there that will re-enable ssh connections).

 

Thanks,

Update: Now, after ~8 hours, it has started allowing connections again.

 

Anyone know/understand why this would be?

 

Thanks,
