Bananas installed a new kernel in linux, I rebooted, loaded up my basic firewall of essentially chinese and amazon ranges (my blog). Checked the connectivity and did my normal stuff.
All of sudden i was being tested and probed. 600 hosts later [385 overnight] my firewall had 244 items in. Nobody got in. It was a small attack but it validates my reasoning for blocking the ranges i do block.

The countries where varied usa,ru, eu area, korea, iran, and japan and the odd part of china and hong kong i have yet to see evidence worth me blocking there cidr’s (a range of addresses). I have records and who knows when i next sort my list on who else joins them,however still no north korea the bogey man of us choice, south korea was also non existent .
Eventually they stopped.
