I check my mail logs every day and I'm constantly 'under attack(?)' by ebay.

After stripping out all the genuine messages and just leaving the offending ones I get the following : -

Code:

This is going on almost daily for several months now. The only way I can stop it, is to block the offending IP Addresses on the Firewall.

So far I've blocked the following ebay addresses : -

Code:
66.211.161.122
66.211.184.70
66.211.184.72
66.211.184.75
66.211.184.76
66.211.184.78
66.211.184.80
66.211.184.83
66.211.184.84
66.211.184.86
66.211.184.89
66.211.184.90
66.211.184.91
66.211.184.93
66.211.185.133
66.211.185.135
66.211.185.139
66.211.185.143
66.211.185.144
66.211.185.145
66.211.185.145
66.211.185.147
66.211.185.149
66.211.185.150
66.211.185.151
66.211.185.157
66.211.185.159
66.211.185.160
66.211.185.161
66.211.185.162
66.211.185.163
66.211.185.164
66.211.185.166
66.211.185.167
66.211.185.171
66.211.185.173
66.211.185.175
66.211.185.175
66.211.185.178
66.211.185.183
66.211.185.184
66.211.185.186
66.211.185.188
66.211.185.189
66.211.185.191
66.211.185.192
66.211.206.7
Can anyone tell me what these people are trying to do, There is no message, just a connection and then it's dropped. Are they trying to hack my computer, guess passwords, send spam or what? Has anyone else got this kind of behaviour?

Maybe someone has typo'd an IP address and they are hitting you on accident? If you recently got the IP address, perhaps it was an old eBay IP for one of their mail servers?

Unless you see other suspicious behavior, I'd consider it pretty benign (but sloppy, and annoying).

I'd reach out to eBay with our findings. I'm sure they would take your complaint seriously (especially if of ask them why they're trying to hack you).

If you want to put an end to the behavior, however, just us together a tcp wrapper rule to deny connections from their domain. Smtp should respond to tcp wrappers.

Are you running an MTA (authoritative for a domain?) that eBay should try and deliver to in the first place?

You only need one rule for these eBay SMTP connections:
Code:
/sbin/iptables -t raw -A PREROUTING -p tcp -s 66.211.160.0/19 --dport 25 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j DROP
*BTW the last IP address in your list isn't eBay.
**BTW[1]: don't use tcp_wrappers.

Which mail server are you running ? You might want to check that you are not running an open relay....

GroupWise - definitely NOT an open relay!!! How can I be sure, I hear you ask. Simple answer, I used to work for Novell EMEA Support (NDS & GroupWise).

I tried complaining to ebay, - as expected they ignored me, as did the a*********a from ConstantContact.

Firewalling them out is just the ignorance as they do to you... can you give us your IP, or in private?

In private. I'm not sure how many spammers / hackers visit this forum to get information to help them in their evil ways!
