    UDP ports 15024 and 53

    My firewall has logged about a hundred hits to 15024 and 53 starting around 2300 est, all from various hosts. What gives?

    I was able to find this. It looks like an exploit designed to take advantage of vulnerabilities in BIND, BSD, and GNU versions of the DNS resolver. Just make sure that these are not normal DNS queries.

    I was unfortunately not able to find any references to port 15024.

    My suggestion would be to update your OS with the latest patch available.
    What OS are you running?

    Just keep your firewall running

    DShield (http://www.dshield.org) reports lots of hits on 15024 on 9/11/03, not too much since.

    I'm running Mac OSX with strict ipfw rules and blackhole enabled. I didn't consider the traffic a threat, I was more interested in what it could be.

    UDP port 53 is for DNS, as for the 15024, most likely its an attempt for a game connection, found out that some games uses that particular port....

    I had to google 'jfgi' to see what it meant. The irony is overwhelming.

    The responses here haven't been off-putting, they've been helpful. My hope was that someone would recognize the activity.

    Answered my own question:

    Today I noticed another string of access attempts to (this time) udp port 11608 and 53. Then it occurred to me that I must be receiving packets meant for the previous owner of my dynamic IP. I confirmed in the firewall log that all the hits started after my modem had reconnected.
