This weekend has been pretty smooth with respect to security incidents, so I thought I would show everybody what my DShield sensor is telling me about the unsolicited packets coming to my home network.  I've been submitting packets to DShield for nearly 10 years so I've got a lot of historical data I can look back through.  This is very helpful when trying to figure out if something is new, or if it's been here before. 

Here's what my report from yesterday (November 20, 2010) said:

   Day: 2010-11-20
Userid: xxxxxxxx

For 2010-11-20 you submitted 7763 packets from 1352 sources hitting 3 targets.

As you can see, I've got a lot of unsolicited Bit Torrent traffic, and quite a few intruders trying to telnet into my home system.  All of these packets are dropped by my firewall, logged, then sent to DShield once an hour.  In a perfect world I would not be seeing any SYN packets coming at my house since I'm not running any servers here.  The large number of Bit Torrent is troubling, but I'm sure that it's because whoever owned the dynamic IP assigned to me was a Bit Torrent user and all of his peers are trying to reconnect.

So what does your home DShield report look like?  Getting anything you should not be seeing?  In fact, are you submitting DShield data from your home network?  If not, please do so!  We can use all of the packets we can get, and doing this at home is a snap.  The instructions are on the DShield site, and if you have any questions just let us know.  We run a discussion list on Google Groups, so be sure to sign up for that too.  Let us know how you use DShield via the comment link below.
