Networking :: Analyze Network Traffic For Attacks And While Finding The Attack?

Apr 9, 2010

I need to learn how to analyze network traffic for attacks and while finding the attack seems easy in my case I need to identify what hes doing. I will be happy right now if you guys can answer my question. How to identify if an attack has brought the server down? I have packet captures of an attack in progress and I noticed that every now and then the attacker would do something weird and the server would start sending packets with just the RST packet sent in response. Normally I had been seeing the RST ACK flags set or the FIN ACK bits set to terminate a connection. So once again my question is how do I tell if the traffic indicates a server crash?

General :: Finding A Traffic Monitor That Only Counts In A Specific Wireless Network

Jul 28, 2011

I need a simple traffic monitor for Linux, that counts the traffic in a specific wireless network because I have volume restrictions on that one.I tried it using the following iptables rule:


iptables -m mac -A INPUT -p all --mac-source <mac-address> ! -s

where <mac-address> is the router's one. is the local subnet. What I actually want is something like --routed-through <mac-address>. Also, is there some way to gather iptables's statistics? Or is there maybe another tool that does what I want (reliable)?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unknown Network Traffic

Jan 16, 2011

I noticed a huge data transfer to my computer. I wasn't downloading anything big, I have just opened Firefox, Thunderbird etc. It stopped after a minute but I'd like to know, what that was - this wasn't the first time something like this happened. I promptly started Wireshark and captured a few packets, all of them look like this:


I tried to look at [URL]... but that webpage does not work. what the traffic might be caused by? Couldn't anyone hacked my pc?

Networking :: Filtering Traffic On Network Interfaces?

Feb 8, 2010

I am manually capturing and injecting Ethernet traffic (using lib_net/lib_pcap libraries) for an application. At the moment , both capturing and injecting are done on the same physical interface (e.g. eth0). The problem is that all the traffic that I inject, are captured again by my application causing an unwanted feedback of injected traffic. This caused that I had to implement traffic filtering when capturing traffic, which is consuming resources and eventually will become too complicated to support.

I have tried using virtual interfaces to separate the capturing and injecting streams, but that also presented the same problem as all the traffic from eth0 is forwarded to both eth0:1 and eth0:2. If possible I would like both streams to go through 1 physical device, using more PDs will be the last resort. I am also looking at using TUN/TAP devices to try and separate the two streams, maybe writing a user-space program that lies between the physical device and the TUN/TAP devices to do the routing of traffic.

CentOS 5 Networking :: How To Configure Network For Web Traffic

Oct 18, 2009

how to configure my network for web traffic.Here is my setup:I have the following virtual machines, (all guest are running on CentOS 5.3);

firewall: Smoothwall 3.0, (hardware, not virtual)
guest # 1: Apache http server
guest # 2: Qmail server
guest # 3: Proftp server

I want all of these services on different machines for security reasons, (mainly the ftp server) how do I route the traffic from the firewall to the different machines? I have been looking at setting up a reverse proxy, however, everything that I have read says that a reverse proxy will not handle the smtp/pop3 traffic. Can I just use a DNS server to route the traffic?

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitor Network Traffic (for All Computers)?

Sep 27, 2010

what I want to achieve is just to be able to say to who ever is killing our relatively fast connect that they aren't the only person using the network. Everyone just says "I hardly download anything." which is obviously untruthful as normally I can download at 1.5 MB/s but now loading even takes way too long (same with pinging and all other sites). Once I do this, I can determine whether or not I need to call my ISP and do the long 'on hold' dance and "have you tried rebooting the router" BS.

Ubuntu Networking :: System Generating Lot Of Network Traffic

Apr 4, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10, upgraded a few weeks ago from 10.04. I noted from the system monitor that the system was generating a lot of network traffic, on the order of 10Mbps if the information is correct (using system monitor and iftop). From the process table, it appears that smbd is accumulating a lot of CPU time, which sort of makes sense as I use Samba for printing from a Windows 7 laptop. But the traffic seems to be making a round trip as I just rebooted the system and it reports in about 10 minutes of uptime 1.2GB was send and 1.2GB was received. Laptop is used for work, it is sitting idle for the last 30 minutes (VPN connection, etc); no backup or other interaction with the Ubuntu system.

Does anyone know if it is possible to filter/block network traffic between internal hosts on a lan?

Eg. : Linux firewall/router ( - LAN Default G/W - all internal > external traffic gets filtered.

How would you filter tcp/ICMP/UDP traffic from internal host a ( ) to host b (

All the internal hosts have the linux f/w as the default gateway, and are all on the same /24 subnet.

I would like to know if I can filter traffic between internal hosts.

Networking :: Spurious Network Traffic From ATT U-Verse Router?

Aug 9, 2010

In my "computer room" I have an ATT U-Verse TV decoder box and my computer connected to a Netgear Switch. The third port on the switch connects to the ATT router. I've just noticed that when I power on the U-Verse TV box I start getting a lot (200-250 KiB/s) of received packets on my Debian Lenny machine as shown in the System Monitor app. I don't show any outgoing traffic in response. That explains why the lights on the switch are blinking at the same rate for both devices. So, what, if anything, is this telling me? Is this normal, or is the ATT router spamming my Linux machine for some reason? Is this a potential problem?

Added: Or is this just telling me that the NetGear FS-105 is not actually an ethernet switch?

The 605-page PDF document reads like a listing of the pros and cons for a huge array of defensive and counterintelligence approaches and technologies that an entity might adopt in defending its networks. Of particular interest to me was the section on deception technologies, which discusses the use of honeynet technology to learn more about attackers� methods, as well as the potential legal and privacy aspects of using honeynets. Another section delves into the challenges of attributing the true origin(s) of a computer network attack.

Debian Configuration :: Network Malfunction After Possible Ping Attack

Apr 8, 2010

I would like to ask something. Today my network Internet access suddenly slowed down, after inspecting the problem the hard way we disconnected one of our servers(ip=190, debian squeeze) from network and the network was alright again. When we plugged it back in, following symptoms were observed: computer 190 pinged gateway app. each 6th time. gateway(debian lenny) pinged computer 190 app each 6th time whole network Internet access was slowed down, local network functioned just fine

While pinging themselves, i ran iptraf on icmp packets on gateway and I saw what i thought was ping attack, lots of echo request coming from external address to computer 190. Blocking that address in iptables didn't help but restarting the gateway did, network Internet conenction is at full speed and gateway and computer 190 ping just fine.

My question is, what steps should I undertake in similar case (it's second time in 2 months) - to debug similar problems. Is it even possible for ping DOS to this kind of damage?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Separately Monitor The Download Traffic From Inside And Outside The Network

Sep 14, 2010

I am connected to a network with free traffic inside it and post-paid outer traffic. So I need a way to be able to separately monitor the download traffic from inside and outside the network. All the solutions I`ve found for now offer monitoring of ALL up/down traffic.

So, I want to get separate statistics on these:

1 —,
2. —
3. —
4. —
5. —
9. —


UPD: I`m connected to the internet through the network`s gate, so all the traffic comes through eth0. I wish to separate traffic incoming from the IPs on top from all other traffic

Networking :: Server To Block All Traffic But US Only Traffic?

Mar 15, 2011

I wanted to tell my server to block all traffic but US only traffic. So i followed this guide:[URL].. Now I know, it's the best way to help prevent hackers/crackers (doesn't matter to me what they are called. I just have to stop them). My server only deals with US clients anyways so might as well just start right there for my server's security before getting into the brute force and injection preventions. So I got it all done compiled everything moved to the proper directory. I then started to setup my iptables. Like so

Code: iptables -F INPUT
iptables -F OUTPUT
iptables -I INPUT 1 -s *.*.*.* -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT 2 -s *.*.*.* -p tcp -j ACCEPT


After seeing that i went digging in the code and figured it was something todo with memory allocation.

Fedora Networking :: VPS - Blocking HTTPD DOS Attacks?

Apr 6, 2010

I have a VPS which is running HTTPD, and its getting blown to bits by a DOS Attack. Turns out mod_evasive is totally useless (due to not running a total - rather counting per child process) and the only way to stop the box from running at 100% on all cores is to term HTTPD. So, what rules can I implement on the iptables firewall to block multiple requests from an IP? I saw this: [URL] Where someone has posted some rules but these dont work ("unknown error 4294967295" on the 3rd line). This is what i'm after though - block multiple requests from a single IP for a certain period of time.

Server :: PPTP Traffic - Gre Traffic Is Being Generated During The Browsing / Reduce Traffic

Sep 27, 2009

Recently I notice that when I'm connected to an vpn server (pptpd) and I'm using it as a default gateway my download and upload speed decreases almost to the half of the usual speed. I made a test using iptables in order to count how much GRE packets are generated (except the real traffic itself) in that way:

iptables -I INPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT
iptables -I OUTPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT

iptables -I FORWARD -s -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -d -j ACCEPT
The first 2 rules match all GRE packets between the pptpd server and client, and the next rules - the traffic between the server and the client.

When I turn the counters to zero and begin to generate traffic (to browse, to download etc.) I see that the GRE packets are even more than these in the FORWARD chain.

So, my question is first of all is my test correct and is it true that so much gre traffic is being generated during the browsing (it becames clear that the traffic is double than if the pptpd wasn't used as a gateway) and if yes - can that traffic be reduced?
