Incoming ARP flood

Q: Incoming ARP flood

Hi, techguys!

I need help with the following problem. I'm on a LAN provided by my ISP, but the LAN is very hostile (when I first connected two years ago, I got hacked within something like 15 minutes). I have closed all my ports by disabling all kinds of Windows XP services (Home) and I installed Jetico Firewall, which I think is really good. I log everything, allowed and blocked traffic.

Jetico allows one to see ARP packets going out and coming in. And that's where my problem lies: Almost nothing goes out, but every second, I get about 8 ARP packets! That seems like very much. No addresses on this LAN are trusted. I have disabled NetBIOS and even uninstalled Microsoft Client from the Internet Connection.

I was wondering if there is a way to somehow regulate this traffic. I've tried blocking the packets, but the Internet connection went dead.
Isn't there a way to limit this traffic? Maybe by hardcoring the gateway's and DNS servers' MAC addresses? If yes, how do I do that?
In the command line it says that my gateway MAC is dynamic. Does that mean I have no control over this crazy stuff?
And how can I determine the MAC of my DNS servers?

I have Ethereal installed, but I have no idea whatsoever what to do with it besides watching all those packets come in. I was alarmed by the administrator of firewallleaktester[dot]com that when I registered there for the mailing list, his logs showed some specially crafted packets that 'could only be the result of a deliberate hacking attempt'. I checked my computer with all kinds of anti-this and anti-that. My computer seems to be perfectly clean.

D-Link DFE-530TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (rev.C) Fast Ethernet connection with limited speed but unlimited traffic.

Preferred Solution: Incoming ARP flood

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If I were to make a guess as to the problem I'd say you have been infected with some malware.
What security software is installed and current?
Have you run any scans with it or any of the other available free scanners?
Keep us posted

My husband and employer both sent me an email that shows the correct date in the email time line, but Outlook shows a recieve date of April 2008.

It doesn't happen on every email, just some. We've all checked our clock dates and their correct. Talked to my Internet Service Provider and they said it was an Outlook problem.

Any ideas?


A:Incoming email randomly shows incoming date 04/08

Hi helpcook, you dont mention what version of Outlook you are running but this link is the same for most versions http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q197717/ Also check Windows control panel>date & time>time zone. Make sure all is correct.

Q: Flood

is there any way to recover data


New Member here - I have tried to solve this problem via internet search and my own uninformed efforts - without much luck.-- Hoping someone here can help me. If this isnt the right forum for this question please advise. I have had a home network with a older Belkin router serving 2 wireless PC's (family) and one wired (my main PC). Am using standard DHCP modes etc .Some time ago we started experiencing occasional strange outages on the PC's for which I had no good explanation -- IE would just quit working for no obvious reason and the PC would need to be rebooted etc to get IE browser connections. Shortly thereafter my son's PC obviously became infected ( Happy 888 plus other gremlins) - which got me seriously involved with finding out what was going wrong. I have cleaned all 3 PC's using all the usual cleaners and HJT, while keeping the wireless PC's offline. This is when I was able to catch the current problem ( I think) on my wired PC [WinXP S1A]. Whatever the problem, it has been shutting down the IE connection about once a day. After a recent shutdown I looked at the security log of the router and this is what it revealed: (xxx.xxx. my revision)

My laptop (Dell Vostro 1500, XP) started freezing up yesterday and my AV began to notify me of all sorts of malware. I ran Spybot S&D in safe mode, and then again at start up - it caught a whole series of infections and supposedly fixed them. I ran it again and it detected no threats, but AV continues to note threats and there are all sorts of weird processes popping up on my task manager (odbnsy.exe, usr_.exe, etc.).

Help would be much appreciated!

Tried to run an HJT log after normal startup, but it keeps freezing up before completing. Here is an HJT log from safe mode:

I have a small server hosted on windows 2003 standard ed sp1 and since few days ago someone is flooding us through udp ports.

I have followed these guides




but the upd flood still goes on.

I'm using outpostfirewall to see the packets and the ip that are flooding. svchost.exe is shown as flooded through UDP 123 port
Could anyone help me to sort this out?

Do you currently have your server configured to match time with the network via NTP? If not, turn the service off and simply shut down UDP/123 at your firewall.

I've recently switched from a BT homehub (which broke [stopped giving out more that 1 bar of signal]) back to our old Belkin router (model #F5D7632-4)

I can access the internet for about 5 minutes, before I lose it and get "could not connect" type messages from my browser. After investigating further I noticed something interesting in the routers security log, A UDP flood.. I'll put the log below:

Hi there. A few days ago while have problems viewing a webpage on firefox, I switched to Internet Explorer and was flooded with trojans and such. A whole load was blocked by my avast anti virus and a load of stuff was deleted by windows security. I decided to run combofix (was instructed to use it once before on this site to fix my last virus problem, updated for this use of course) hoping for a quick fix or just to see if everything was fine. Combofix detected rootkit activity and did the reboot. Problem is, at one scan stage a couple minutes in, my computer crashed with a BAD_POOL_HEADER error. This happens everytime I run it. All programs closed and anti virus off. The same thing happened when I tried to run gmer, although my computer crashes just running the .exe so I was unable to get that log.
I hope you can help, thanks for your time

I ran two full scans to try to get rid of it but it won't go.
The scan tells me the virus is a "Backdoor.Flood" whatever that means, and that it's sitting in my "C:\Windows\ststem32\script.ini" file.

MY internet has been painfully slow of late and I managed to finally get inside the brain of my wifi router. I checked the log and noticed lots and lots of UDP Flood attack reports from many different IP addresses. Can someone tell me what this means and if it could be the reason my internet seems to be 5 times slower than usual? A

Also, is there anything I can do? I have a D-Link router.

I'm a Vista & PC newbie, as well as a newbie to this forum. Sorry in advance for such a long post.

I have a Sony Vaio NG31S, with Vista Home Premium & Service Pack 1. When my free Norton trial expired, I read reviews and bought Shield Deluxe, which seems to work well except for regularly saying that a mal-ware scan has not been carried out for (e.g.) 40 days when one has actually just been carried out.

Now the PC has gone crazy, with a constant barrage of Windows error messages piling up faster than I can delete them. Meanwhile, programmes won't load.

At first, the normal desktop was visible, I was able to set up an Administrator account and thanks to this forum try some possible solutions, such as 'restore' - but none have worked.

I had recently added updates from Apple for iTunes & Quicktime and suspected they may have conflicts, so I un-installed them - no change.

The most common error message is: 'Windows Problem Reporting has stopped working', but there are many others, such as 'Task Scheduler Engine' and many more landing on top of each other and all saying that various features have stopped working. These include System Restore, so I can't follow recommendations to carry out a restore.

I shut down last night and went to have another go tonight - this time, after signing in as Administrator again, I can only get a black screen with the Windows error messages coming thick & fast.

The Vaio came with Vista pre-loaded and no support disks. I... Read more

A:Flood of error messages

You can contact Sony and order the disks for a fee.

I would run Hard Drive Diags and Windows Memeory Diag

Also, I would get rid of and a refund (personal opinion) of Shield Deluxe.
I have seen this in the past, and I think it was the root cause of issues. But uncertain as it was a long time ago.

You should find out what manufacturer HDD you have and run those (ie: Western Digital, Seagate, Maxtor etc. [Toshiba Drives do not have diags available at all])

When you run the mem diag, after it starts hit "t" on the keyboard to run the advanced diags and let them run for no less than 4 to 6 hours.

Can someone explain what a "detected syn flood attack" means?
lately I've noticed my broadband connection has slowed to a point where it is slower than dialup,pages take longer to load
and downloads are 1 or 2kbs or sometimes less than 1kbs when i should normally get around 30kbs
I downloaded a program called NNAgent and in the alerts it mentioned detected syn flood attack,is this a symptom of some malware on my computer or is the problem coming from my isp?
I'm using a WAG54Gv.3 wireless modem on windows xp

A:Solved: SYN flood attack


usually not malware, but an attacker on the internet flooding your IP address with syn packets, otherwise known as a denial of service attack, contact your isp about it.

If you suspect malware download MBAM, manually update it after install and do a scan of your system, it is free.


Free version has to be updated occasionally, and has to be done manually by you, and will only scan when you tell it to, the paid version has automatic updates and active protection.

....this is day three, since I started getting around 500 emails day from that microsoft patch, critical update, returned mail, etc. email virus.

I have OE set to not let in attachments, but the emails still come in.

It still seems to be averaging around 1 email every 3 mins. I have now set OE to NOT check for new messages, so I can click on SEND/RECEIVE and download them all at once.

For awhile I was finding the sender's email and sending back a short note, like "your computer is sending a virus, just letting you know in case you weren't aware". I figured what good does it do to just delete them, if the people don't know it's happening?

I'm also getting around 20 every few hours in my Yahoo mail, but this fills it up overquota, and stops more from coming in, till I delete and empty it all and it starts over again.

I thought, by now it would have stopped, or the servers (mine is Earthlink) would have set up some kind of filter or something.

Is there any "best" way to deal with this?

Should I keep downloading the emails and deleting them, or let them back up?

Same with yahoo mail, though with that I think they automatically start deleting mail if it's over quota too long, and that would allow more to come in, and I might not get something I want (email)

I don't have the virus, and don't think I'll get it, with OE not letting in attachments and my AVG virus scan running, checking all mail.

Just not sure ... Read more

Hi I'm new here so hope I'm posting in right forum. Correct me if I'm not.

I have 3 laptops an Ipad 2 and an Xbox which use a Belkin wireless router to connect to the outside world. My main PC is hardwired to router and so is my Humax HD TV Box.

The problem is we all keep losing connection together. It's almost become an hourly occurence. Sometimes more often and its driving us mad.

Whenever we lose connection the wireless is still showing as connected via the login and all the lights are lit on thr router?

The router is a Belkin F5d7634-4 model.

All items are MAC address filtered. Security is set at WPA WPA2 Encryption Type AES and there is a password to use the router.

I've noticed when we all lose connection that the following is a typical security report from the router but I haven't the foggiest what its telling me. Is the info below the source of our trouble and if it is what's the likely cause please anyone?

My Gateway WinXPPro desktop (750MB RAM) starts and runs just fine, and I'm willing to leave them alone, but they sure do look weird. Clue: The desktop is a gift from a friend and although he had deleted a lot of his files, he did not do a full re-install of XPPro. Maybe some old stuff got left on.

I got an automatic notice from the hotmail "postmaster" saying that my email was "delayed" and would be sent later!
So, possibly there is a bug in the hotmail side of it.
I've written to the hotmail people, but no response so far.

Does anyone know anything about this problem, or have any suggestions?

2)Some applications are reporting that my CPU does not meet minimum spec, saying it has a speed of 0.0 GHz.
3)Sophos antivirus refuses to start entirely, making a virus scan difficult
4)Itunes library was reported as damaged
5)Audio does not work for some applications.

32-bit Vista
Dual Core AMD 2.41 GHz Processor
2 GB ram
Geforce 8600 GT graphics card

HJT log attached
