I was recommended by my brother to direct the question here about the level of traffic I get against several of my blocked ports.

I run pfsense 1.2.3, router in bridge.

Behind pfsense I have:

1x desktop windows 7

1x Linux ubuntu running web(about 50MB transfered/day) and ftp service(filtered) and mumble (used by about 10 users)

For the past weeks I have noticed an increased of hosts trying to send UDP packets to mainly 1 port at a time. Suddenly the port they try to send to is changed and I barely notice any traffic to the previous port.

I have not noticed an increase of traffic on my web ports. Snort have only blocked 2 hosts in a 1 week period (but not related as I can not find that host in my fw logs).

The port changed to 39742 2 days ago. I don't recall the port before that, but it was different. Curious when the requests will change port again.

Should I be concerned by this? Is this normal? Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

To get general information on popular target ports you can check out SANS Internet Storm Center.

The SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) uses advanced data correlation and visualization techniques to analyze data collected from thousands of sensors in over sixty countries.

Top 10 Targets: http://isc.sans.org/reports.html

To check reports of attacks against port 39742, you can do this query:

As long as your firewall is blocking the connections, you have nothing at all to worry about. Publicly facing internet connections will always be bombarded with random, automated scans and pings and intrusion attempts.

Thanks, but is it normal that the connections suddenly change to a different port a few times a week, leaving the previous port almost idle to connections? It seems kinda "organized", maybe it's a botnet? –  connery Jun 2 '11 at 19:55

Less organised, more 'automated' - this is pretty much standard for every IP address on the Internet. Your choke/filter router and your firewall should be blocking these quite happily:-) –  Rory Alsop Jun 2 '11 at 23:03
