On my server one of the services is a Discord bot. It was down which prompted me to look into why.

In my syslogs I noticed three increasingly concerning items:

do-agent[1066]: 2019/08/25 08:50:21

After a reboot this went away.

openssl s_client -showcerts -connect <url> showed nothing unusual (though I wish I had done this before a reboot).

Some background:

  • Server is an up-to-date Fedora 28 server.
  • The non-default services that I run are:
    • a Golang based webserver (HTTP REST API)
    • a Golang based Discord bot
    • Digital Ocean's stats agent
  • SSH is password-less and firewall restricted to certain IP addresses.

I haven't run into this before nor am I able to find similar results on google.

Is it possible to identify how this happened or if it is even of concern?

Should I nuke the server?


  • Could be DNS cache poisoning. Next time, check to see which IP addresses those connections actually go to. – Jenny D Aug 25 at 18:31
  • Thank you, I will definitely do so if it happens again. – ThievingSix Aug 26 at 17:00
