    Getting Ping attack how do i stop it?


    Hi. I change my ip from time to time with a software, and every time i get a ping attack just as if someone uses it to be able to see what ip &/or mac address i have now that i changed it.

    Get Currports From CurrPorts: Monitoring TCP/IP network connections on Windows

    This will give you more information on the traffic as to whats going on.

    This could just happen because of your IP changing. Local traffic. And it's icmp protocol, not UDP or IP

    these are computers talking about something

    On what we can see this is all internal on your home network so you need to scan every pc

    All the IP addresses in your screenshot, local or remote, are 192.168.0.xxx. That means they are all addresses for devices on your local network, nothing is coming in from outside.

    Hey hey hey now. I'm here asking because I don't know, so I kindly ask if it's of concern, I mean it said it's ping attack, so it's not "tin foil hat" to ask when I'm not an expert :P

    That's because I mistakenly had my script to change ip to 5 min interval.

    A 'ping' is merely a very simple 'are you there' query to see if a response is forthcoming. Your second screenshot showing it as a 'ping attack' and a 'trojan' service is, IMO, humorous but not helpful.

    If you are changing IP addresses frequently - especially at 5 minute intervals - then other devices within your internal network are going to wonder what's going on... so will often do their own 'pings' before using 'arp' to try to work out a changing correlation of IP address to MAC address on each internal device.

    That, I believe, is what your first 'simplewall' screenshot is trying to show you.

    IMO whatever script you're using to change IP address is actually the cause of the flood of 'are you there' queries on your internal network.

    Hope this helps...

    Nothing to see here other than someone learning the ropes of a new tool, I mean toy.
