Being Port Scanned ?


[link to this post]
 
Hello Peep's

Is anyone else's firewall reporting repeated port scans from www-critical-io.
I noticed my routers firewall was reporting TCP port scans from different IP address's in the past 7 days, and when I checked the IP address's they were all associated with www-critical-io.

Because my IP is assigned dynamically, I have been disconnecting a few times to gain a different IP address. Unfortuneately this doesn't seem to work as the firewall still says it's being port scanned.

Anyone else on plusnet showing port scans on the firewall logs on your routers?

If you go to that website, it states that they are doing it in the aid of "research".

Very annoying yes. I'd suggest Plusnet to block it on their firewall side. In fact, all ISPs should block them.

Indeed. I hope they have checked out whether doing that is legal in the countries they are targeting. Could land himself in trouble.
