Assault of the Blubster packets

I’m getting about three packets a second from port 41170 on my router, which after about six hours is unable to keep up and crashes. Yes, my router crashes every six hours. This angers me greatly.

Tonight took the cake though – I couldn’t play Battlefield properly. That pissed me off more than anything. I’ve got to find a way to stop this traffic from even coming in. Who wants to help me sabotage a Blubster installation? :p

    Do you know the IP address for the attack? If so, in command prompt do ‘ping -a -n 1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx’ and find out the ISP for the address, and then call the ISP up and report the IP address for the malicious attacks.

    This, of course, is assuming it’s an ISP that is in America and has a toll-free number, but if it’s causing you enough greif, maybe the international long-distance may be worth it. *shrug* That’s what I would do.

    As the MOTD for an OpenNap server says “Don’t even THINK about messing with my server, or I’ll mess with YOU.”

    No, there’s a computer on my network soliciting those packets. nmap couldn’t find them right off the bat but I haven’t had a shot to dig very far yet. We’ll get there though.

    It’s probably an inconvenience, but maybe just unplug one computer at a time until you find it? You should just be able to look at the activity lights and find out where it’s coming from, too.

    It’s coming in over WiFi. I’ll be changing the hardware shortly so we’ll see what happens…

    This is slightly off-topic, but I noticed that Comcast increased my service to 6mbit from 4. I get about 5.5 on bandwidth tests, but on DLs I’m holding right at 700k/sec. Weeeee! :D
