    ftp flooding attacks

    i keep getting ftp flooding, same ip opens many sessions. if i catch them i null route the ip, but thats after the fact.

    is this related to anon ftp?

    is there a cure, like how do i kill anon ftp if thats the opening these maggots are using.

    which FTP daemon are you running? Anonymous FTP should always be killed if you are not using it to serve files, because it is a security risk.

    If you think you are seeing a lot of Anonymous FTP connections, but are not sure, take a look at your FTP log files to see what is happening...alternatively install a program like LogSentry:

    That will give you a daily readout of unusual events.

    If you think its anon FTP, then do a search on your server for .nfo files

    Then look inside them and see what ya find...
