Re: Source 126.0.0.1 UDP/137

That's a signature of the worm network.vbs scanning over TCP137.  Make sure
you're not allowing netbios (137...) un-established inbound from the
internet on your firewall.   The reason you're seeing it on the firewall is
because its it probably following the default route (0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0) out to
the internet since you don't have a route for this network.  check your
router by showing route for 126.0.0.0, if you don't have a route for this,
chances are that the default route on your network is pointed at your
firewall's inside interface.  shut down netbios on the inside interface of
the firewall too.  Scan all inside hosts for virus, you'll find an infected
one.  you must be using windows.

Subject: Source 126.0.0.1 UDP/137


Can anyone tell me what is causing these entries to pop up in my firewall
log?
On our network we use a 10.x.x.x IP scheme. There is no host with the
address
of 126.0.0.1 on our network anywhere. I was able to capture this by
sniffing
the traffic from source 126.0.0.1.
............ CKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAA..!

I have learned that this is a legitimate NetBIOS query.

Here is an excerpt from my firewall log.

Deny udp src inside:126.0.0.1/137 dst outside:3.13.0.10/137
(General
Electric, NJ USA)
Deny udp src inside:126.0.0.1/137 dst outside:63.14.0.10/137      (UUNET,
VA,
USA )
Deny udp src inside:126.0.0.1/137 dst outside:210.11.0.10/137    (Asia
Pacific Network Information Centre, AU)

By sniffing the traffic I was able to find get the source MAC address. The
MAC I got is that of our core router. I have not attempted to track the
source
beyond that router yet.
