  • Network Abuse Reporting

    Hello all,

    I have been getting unauthorized access attempts showing up on my security logs on w2k03 server. One NIC is global IP'd and goes through a netscreen 25. I can block out the yahoos after the fact but I'd like to also report them. Is there a central agency to report network abuse?

    Let's say there is an agency to report this stuff too -- IANA, Internic, ???. I'm a hacker sitting on an ADSL connection behind a multi-million user ISP. IANA will take the ISP's IP addresses away??? Force my account to be cancelled??? What are they going to do??? Follow the money. In other words, nothing is going to happen.

    What do you have opened up on your firewall to be getting all these unauthorized access attempts? On which port(s) are these attempts occurring? How are you detecting the attempts? Frequency of attack? Impact to your operation?

    You give way too little info for us to be of help.
    Cheers,

    Rick

      Hi Rick,

      Thanks for the 411...really didn't think there was any agency. Just thought there might have been some co-ops being formed to address issues such as this.

        In the USA you can always report it to the FBI, but depending on the logs, there may be nothing they can do.

          Start complaining to the FBI and before you know it, you're on a "watch list".

              Former professor of mine occasionally did computer forensics work for them. Met some of the FBI in the area in and around a computer forensics class I had, and they were a bit behind the times in certain areas lol.
