So I WhoIs'd 10.1.1.12 IP from:
Ok, notice at 06:45:04 the OUTGOING attempts to ports 1935 and 8080? ... That's a government backdoor in VISTA.
...and got this
IP Location: Private Ip Address Lan
IP Address: 10.1.1.12
OrgName: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
Dis-Info? you be the judge. I'll reserve my right to remain silent on this one
I would like to add though, when I did the WhoIs look-up I got a zilch return when attempting to do a Reverse IP Look Up, Ping, DNS Query, and a Trace
Wow, I'm like astonished at the amount of sheer ignorance going on in this thread. Where to even begin.... Your "back door" for port 8080 is a well
known proxy port. These are servers that allow you to redirect through them to either attack others or to visit web pages anonymously.The fact that
someone was probing for it means... your on the internet..
The 10.x.x.x Ip mask is similar to the 192.168.x.x ip mask in that they should not actually be on the internet. Usually you will find these addresses
behind NAT routers. These addresses are often spoofed by people that want you to think it's IANA.
If your system is hitting outgoing ports looking for a proxy, either you have some malware, or your intentionally scanning for proxies.
Yes, the government is probably watching you, but they really don't need to hit your system to do so. IP cop is fun to play with, but useless for any
real diagnostics, and it certainly isn't a real firewall.
Ping and traceroute are often blocked (icmp type 0) IP reversals are almost never put in when dealing with lazy admins...and dns query?? No idea what
you think you might be doing with that one...
If your really interested in what is going on around you, try Kismet
. That will open your eyes, and show you
that you really don't need to be actually connecting to a persons system to see what their doing.
