Just reviewing my router logs...
May/25/2004 23:33:23 TearDrop Attack Detect 126.96.36.199:25461 :29289 Packet Dropped
May/25/2004 23:33:23 TearDrop Attack Detect 188.8.131.52:25888 :19535 Packet Dropped
and from pcworld.com "...TearDrop bug, which can allow a malicious user to crash your Windows NT machine."
Luckily these packets were dropped - looks like no damage done, although my win98 machine has been freezing up a lot lately, and i've been running an apache webserver (v1.3.26 - computer couldn't handle 2.0.49 - darn outdated win98...) but virus scan and spyware progs say my computer's clean...
just wondering if anyone thinks there's a connection between the apache server running and the teardrop attacks?? or just coincidence? and of course if there's any further info on the teardrop attack please pass it on!!
