slow portscan?

I seem to be getting hit with a very slow portscanner.

Re: slow portscan?

Not a lot you can do about slow port scans apart from block the source IP, if it bugs you, but if they really want to scan you they will no doubt do it from another IP. Id suggest logging it to see what they are trying do do if anything as these things often turn out to be misconfigured applications.

Re: slow portscan?

suggestions ?

go to grc.com and find shieldsup page.

scan yourself, and if you aren't fully "stealthed" have a tinker with your firewall/router rules.

any incoming packets that aren't associated with a program you are running, should be dropped.

It's likely that the above scan is set up to scan a large range of IP address blocks looking for ports that can be used to forward traffic like a proxy for masking a spammers  address. Hence it appears to be slow from your point of view..
It's also likely that the scanning address too has also been hijacked.

As Grail suggested, maybe its a misconfigured app, altho i cant think of one that would do such a slow scan across such a range.

regardless of what or why, take it as a wake up call to overhaul how your firewall/router handles things. Can't be too careful.

Re: slow portscan?

It's almost impossible to avoid this sort of thing when hooked up to the wire nowaday. If you're confident that your firewall is not allowing connections to any ports then you probably don't have anything to worry about. If this is a production box that makes you money maybe worry more. big_smile

Re: slow portscan?

Out of curiosity, in what log file the above  portscanning info would be. I tried grepping my /var/log but couldn't find anything.

Re: slow portscan?

jackmetal posted a question about Firestarter a while ago, and there is some issue with it finding the proper log files.

murkus and idaho45 gave me the following command:

gconftool-2 --set --type string /apps/firestarter/client/system_log /var/log/iptables.log

which is a long answer to a short question

Re: slow portscan?

Thanks for the answer.  I don't use iptables as I don't run any server.  That's why grepping didn't work. wink
