    Telnet

    Hi all,
    i was looking through my firewall log the other day when i noticed a sub7 had been blocked. This would not normally have given me much to worry about, what with AOL constantly pinging me etc, but the ip address of the remote service looked a bit suspect. So i did a bit of research, whois doesn't show up anything nor the ip locator here at AO. On the off chance i tried to telnet into the ip address and low and behold i got a prompt for a password.

    I was hoping someone here might be able to help me track down the location of this attack.

    The ip address is 63.238.172.48

    Any help would be much apreciated.

    Whois info just shows this:

    Qwest Communications NET-QWEST-BLKS2 (NET-63-236-0-0-1)
    63.236.0.0 - 63.239.255.255
    Conectiv Communications Inc. QWEST-63-238-160 (NET-63-238-160-0-1)
    63.238.160.0 - 63.238.191.255

    # ARIN WHOIS database, last updated 2003-06-10 21:05
    # Enter ? for additional hints on searching ARIN's WHOIS database.
    Which means the ip belongs to Conectiv Communications Inc.

    Google on Conective Communications give us this:

    Conectiv Communications offered voice and data services to residential and business customers in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Cavalier Telephone focuses on similar customers in the same region, offering local, long-distance, internet dial-up, and high-speed DSL service across the mid-Atlantic region.
    http://www.conectiv.com/civ/news/pre...ses/011115.cfm

    Telnetting to that address just prompts for a password. This usually means some sort of router.

    So my best guess? It's a DSL (l)user that's using a hackers (read: scriptkiddie) tool.
    If you're properly firewalled just ignore it. It will go away eventually.

    Both work on the same principle. Neotrace just has a nicer interface and is able to lookup those AS numbers to get a location.

    hey dude, nice nick

    I agree, it's propably a kid messing with some kiddy toys..

    as long as you don't have a sub7 server running, it's harmless !!

    It could be a script kiddie... or a zombie.
    The guy behind the attack may b a dummy ... or a malicious hacker.

    b aware that ur firewall logs only what it is configured to. It won't tells u what came through.
    I'll advice u to
    - create a specific frw rule for the ip addy to stop any further attempt from that comp or setup a sniffer or NIDS to catch any flows from the ipaddy
    - & check ur file system integrity

    It's probably sm1 playing with a freeware but who knows!!!

    Most AV should warn you or even attempt to automaticly remove sub7. Most servers like sub7 servers will be runing at startup. You can manually check for malware by looking for weird files, ports, regkeys, & (ect). But with a nice and up-to-date AV & trojan removal it'll do half the work for you and at a much quicker rate of speed.
