Old - Malicious IP scanning

Posted 06-04-2007 at 09:41 AM by unixfool

IP, an IP that belongs to, has been very active lately. The machine has been compromised twice in 30 days and does a multitude of scans. Last month I reported this IP to and the machine was eventually taken offline (after waiting over two weeks). I reported it again this weekend when I noticed the IP was scanning against port 80 on my public server.

I Created some scripts for Snort
