Hi, we have recently got a Telecom THOMSON TG585v7 router and I think someone might be trying to hack into it, I have no idea what "fragment_out-of-order" means but the count is very high compared to the rest.

Here is the page from Intrusion Detection


Intrusion NameCount

fragment_sweep
18

zero-length_fragment_size
0

small_fragment_size
0

fragment_size_overrun
0

fragment_overlap
2

fragment_out-of-order
2258

ip_protocol_scan
0

tcp_port_scan
1

tcp_syn_scan
0

stealth_tcp_null_scan
0

stealth_tcp_fin_scan
0

stealth_tcp_xmas_scan
0

stealth_tcp_full_xmas_scan
0

stealth_tcp_vecna_scan
0

stealth_tcp_syn-fin_scan
0

udp_port_scan
5

ping_sweep_scan
1


Any help on this would be appreciated...Cheers

Sorry about the mess, it looked alright when it was typed, I edited it but it didn't save the changes and now the edit button has gone... *facepalm*

A few out-of-order fragmented packets are nothing at all to worry about on a home DSL connection. You're not being hacked.

If anything, a device out there in Internet land is experiencing congestion and you're getting some packets out of order because of it.

Do you have anything else that makes you think you're being hacked, or just that? Because if it's just that, you're fine.

Off topic a bit, do you find your modem crashes often?

Thanks for the response, we actually had one day where an extra 5gb of usage was recorded, with only 600mb used between the computers in our house (using the Networx monitor). I have changed the password and new devices must be registered with the router.

This new one has been good so far but an older one of the same model I had crashed a few times due to overheating I think..

The images were on a 192.168.1.* address, which it's in your internal LAN, so you saw it fine, but when posted it was blocked to everyone else.
