I have noticed and was watching over the last 6 months that when I ha my internet browser open I had not activity with ip's trying to come through the Bogons/back from other programs. But as soon a I came on to ATS I saw a dramatic uptick in bogon activity. I am not sure if it is ATS activity for ads or if those ads are being used to enter my computer through bogon/backdoors to look or place harmful material in my computer.

Five of them used UDP protocols and two of then are using IMPG protocols are using since I opened ATS this morning for the last 20 minutes. The souirce IP are 10.0.0.72, 10.0.072.55117/ the last five digits n each one vary 59835, 62517, 55618, 53397. 60063. Should I be allowing these or can I continue to block these?

By the end of this session I have over 20 bogon /backdoors tried to be used.

Interesting. I do have remote access blocked and run adaware quite often along with my antivirus and have not had any detection for the last year. I should check if they are working properly today, My browser has been kicking off a lot saying I should not go to some places so I know that some of the IPs are not good but there is always a chance that I could be hacked.

OK wnet off of ATS and all bogn activity stopped.

Then I went to my Person to Person protocol and saw a big uptick in activity as computers were trying to get into my by piggy backing my out going and them trying o swing back in the incoming all was blocked. This i normal in P2P protocol though.

Once I ended my P2P all activity stopped. Logged back on to ATS to write this and I have again an Indian private network using something at ATS to try and get through to my computer piggybacking in and out of bogons.

Does ATS use bogons/backdoor activity in ADS or in the site threads to the ATS members computer? Should I allow this?

It is also going through Cisco servers are your servers using Cisco for internet access?

10.x.x.x ip addresses are non routable.

My guess is .72 is you.

Hopefully this should explain it to you.

What is a private IP address?

TL: DR It is expected behaviour. Unless you really do have a virus.

I once read that ATS is full of tracking software.

This is my bothered face;

And immediately after my last post I got an ad promoting tracking software...

It's all because of the ads?

I am generally finding massive degradation of ATS performance in the last months.

I'm assuming they are under repeated DDOS attacks.

I never have any issues with ATS.

can you packet filter/ add an ACL for the address range?

I was hoping bogon was something like the borg from star trek. To say I'm disappointed would be a great understatement.

The incoming IP looks like my network but it was a masked IP when I looked deeper into it after I posted the OP. So when I logged into ATS that is when the masked IP tried to get info from my computer. It could be their ads but it also could be something a little more nefarious.

Those are sockets. A socket is a mix of an IP address and a port, maybe you knew that. A socket is created to allow communication.

Why not install Wireshark and do some packet captures?

Upload them to Cloudshark and let's have a look.

the IP is active on ATS using their tracking software to utilize my ports to try and send info from my computer to India and when I searched for that IP it was being used in a VPN program so it could be going to anywhere unless I can get the VPN being used to give me the true IP. But isn't that what you pay for VPN's to do mask your IP's. I am n ot worried as my program is blocking it. I just notice I can go to my top 20 sites and the only time that this block appears is when I am logged into ATS. No other site I visit has any blocked activity.
