I was wondering if this kind of firewall activity could be
considered Hostile/Suspicious?

59, 2001-04-12 04:05:30, 2000301, TCP port scan,,,,<=me, port=1243|6711-6713|6776|27300|27310|27374|275736711-6713&name=Sub_7_2|Sub_7, 78, A

59, 2001-04-12 06:14:05, 2003104, Proxy port probe,,,,<=me, port=3128&reason=Firewalled, 6, A

If so, should this be reported to the network administrator?

What kind of logs are they ?
They look messy, anyway looks like two different people are doing a scan for backdoors that others may leave once hacked into a system.

I would just add a rule to Reject them, not Deny.
Then the go away quicker and don't take up as much bandwidth.


I get about 5 - 10 attempt to attack my firewall a day, some I chase some I don't.
Most are just scripts looking for port 53 and the Bind bug.
