Res: Dealing with port/vulnerability scans

Hello Tony,


I would enable those signatures, because you can check it in a better way to analyze real scans. 

Depending on your IDS/IPS device, you can choose to block/log if it targets more than 10 ports, for example. You can 
also check the kind of the event. A vuln scan can trigger a lot of signatures related to probes or some specific 
protocol. 

In additional, you can send an Abuse Letter to the owner of this IP.

I hope to be helpful.


Regards.

Assunto: Dealing with port/vulnerability scans

Hi,

I'm tuning my IDS and I'm thinking of taking out the portscan/web
vulnerability scan rules.  Why?  Because, yes - I know that somebody
may be scanning my network - but, what can I do about it?

1.  Block the IP? But, what if its NAT - meaning only 1
workstation/user did the port scanning, I would be blocking all the
possibly valid users behind that IP.
2.  Report it to their ISP or to them?  Then what?

I want my IDS console not to be too cluttered that's why I'm tuning
it.  If its too cluttered - I might be missing out the really
important alerts.

What about you?  How do you deal with port/vulnerability scans?  Is it
illegal btw?


Thanks.


Best,
Tony
