    IDS Event Logging Question

    Hi Guys,

    Quick question about IDS event logging. If I see an "Attacker Address" of 0.0.0.0, is it safe to assume that the source was spoofed?

    Also, if I see an "Attacker Address" of 1.2.3.4, for example, with a target address of 0.0.0.0, what target is the attacker going after?

    Thanks!

    Knowing what IDS generates these messages might help?

    Right.. Have a look at the original (IP) packets that triggered the alert
