And tens of thousands of attacks can happen in like...a literal second.

u/irving47 Sep 06 '22 edited Sep 06 '22

depends on your definition of an attack. access attempts via brute-force? hell yeah. set up an ASA or router (or anything) that accepts SSH or god forbid telnet attacks and shows the attempts in real-time. It's crazy how fast they start, and stay. I used to have a RADIUS (good for more than just dialup modem banks!) and TACACS+ server that was set up with a centralized password db for a company with roughly 100 sites, and watching the dictionary attacks coming in at all times was just a waterfall of text streaming over the screen almost faster than you could read it. Amusing and disconcerting.

edit- 12 hours late, but this is what half of it looked like. Probably the RADIUS side. Who remembers. 10 years and all those sites have moved on to other providers and the company is gone. Truncated most of the IP addresses, though. https://imgur.com/a/gsDk3OP

I feel like I got my Security + cert just so I could read posts like this.

On a serious note, in my first role with cybersecurity, I came across these servers for our company that were being constantly hit by feelers the second they went up. So many random hits just to see if they could get access or what it was. It was nuts.

u/irving47 Sep 06 '22

Read posts like this, or laugh at? :) I'm a few years removed from the industry and never had an anything+ cert (except for a ubiquiti wireless tech one), so I hope I didn't get anything terribly wrong. Just going by what I remember seeing.

u/HazeMoar Sep 06 '22

I actually really appreciated all of this because I’m in a Cybersecurity cohort at the moment and somehow managed to understand a lot of this. Anyone know of any subreddits geared towards Cybersecurity Learning by chance?

u/phyrros Sep 06 '22

While not in the Business like with everything tech related: Get a firm understanding of the basics from books or whitepapers and only then delve deep into the rabbithole of cybersec. The basics get even more important in fast moving fields as you will be presented outdated or straight up false Information side-by-side with helpful Information. And while errors might be corrected at the time of the Posting- nobody goes back years to correct old reddit/stackexchange posting

2

u/HazeMoar Sep 06 '22

Thanks so much. I’ve spent the last couple years learning about A+ and Network+ material and only just started on cybersecurity. But I can see why you make this recommendation. Without that foundation- none of this would make any sense at all. Thanks again!

2

u/phyrros Sep 06 '22

You are welcome, but to hammer the point home: something making no sense at all is vastly preferable to something which makes sense but is wrong.

This month i spend 3 days being truly stupid by being too lazy to truly invest time in understanding the Code i was copying from stackexchange and hunting errors which never were real. ^

And there is little more depressing that realizing that you spend a lot of time (and money) because you were to lazy to invest an hour to understand a Problem

2

u/flatline0 Sep 06 '22

Yep, a good rule of thumb is to cross reference everything from 3 sources. Skim read it all 1st to see if they agree & it makes general sense, & only the dive into the details.

In addition to avoiding incorrect information, it also helps identify situations where there are multiple solutions to the same problem

u/wfaulk Sep 06 '22

If this is the level of information required for a Security+ cert, I should just go take the test.

5

u/Panda_Tech_Support Sep 06 '22

It’s definitely a memory test. You should know the material well enough to talk about some major points of it, but definitely not a test that you have to be a total expert to pass. I found the CCNA to be a bit tougher. But it depends on the person. Parts that I found difficult, others blew past with almost comedic ease.

u/vtriple Sep 06 '22

99% of tech certs are memory tests if you know where to get the answers...

Shouldn't America have more oxygen since China's larger population would have consumed more of it, thus have less remaining.

It's fun to have a router or AP or whatever on an AAA (authentication, authorization, and accounting) server of some sort that lets you watch the logs in real time. Fun and scary.

u/[deleted] Sep 06 '22

I ended up just whitelisting the CIDR blocks assigned to the country the site operates in. Majority of websites I host are only for UK consumers so it’s far easier to just whitelist the country than blacklist individual IP’s.

To add to this, the amount of lazy attacks I’ve seen since lockdown is insane. These script kiddies aren’t even doing basic probing, they just run a meta spoilt module over a subnet of IPs and see what sticks. It’s honestly embarrassing.

2

u/rupturedprolapse Sep 06 '22

yeah there was a small niche social media site I helped with a little over a decade ago, we ended up eventually blocking CIDR blocks from China/Russia because it was just constant.

Also same experience, they were just blindly trying to run exploits on us that were meant for things like wordpress when we were running something totally different.

I for one am deeply disappointed in my country over this. This is the United States of America and those are total rookie numbers. We really gotta start churning and burning and pump those numbers up. Every time they try to publish one of their messages they should see one of ours instead. We need millions of attacks if we can't manage billions.

168

u/RaederX Sep 06 '22

I think you are completely wrong here.

The Chinese should never have been able to detect the attacks, or they should have been duped to think Russia did it. That the US was caught... an embarrassing and massive failure.
I do agree about the volume point though.

114

u/narcisian Sep 06 '22

Naw that’s not how intrusion works. At least some of your probes are gonna be detected honestly most are gonna be detected if you’re smart you save the good stuff for high value targets. For years the enemy assumed we’d sit on our hands and allow them to run amok. Now that they are aware of the parity they have to expend their resources.

25

u/[deleted] Sep 06 '22

I think it depends on the type of cyberattack.

For example, a zero-day exploit vs a DDOS attack are 2 completely different animals. First one requires you to be unaware of its existence and the latter just spams the fuck outta your system regardless of your awareness of the attack.

setting off an IDS doesn't necessarily imply they were successful. Connect to port 22 and enter a bad password a few times, you'll trigger it. Hit the webserver with a url ending in cmd.exe(it doesnt have to be valid), you'll trigger it.

u/tanstaafl90 Sep 06 '22

Put up ones easier to find, continually, not just once and they spend time looking for and stopping those. I'm not saying they aren't looking for others, but this may be a distraction for more intrusive attacks.

Duh.

But "cyber attack" could mean anything. Lots of pings? "Ooh, we're under attack". Some entry attempts from god-knows-who from an IP in the US? "Ooh, we're under attack."

If we're not probing for, and cataloging vulnerabilities, someone's not doing their fucking jobs. Same on their side, and on Russia.

I'm NOT an information/cyber security guy but I'm 99% convinced multiple agencies (on every side) has probed every freaking IP/host/server on IP blocks in countries of interest to determine what OS it's running, what version, and what services (and versions, of say, IIS or apache or one of a hundred backends) just sitting in a database somewhere that probably lists multiple types of attacks each one is vulnerable to, and probably even a big red button somewhere that unleashes a fury of information hellfire upon every one of them at once, or in sequence to fit whatever strategy deemed necessary. Those that we can't infiltrate will have botnets sent after them in a DDOS attack to paralyze them.

"Oh, China has decided halt all cargo container ships bound for the US? Guess they won't be using that inventory control system we found last year. Do we want to trash the server entirely, or just wipe the data from the database on their Russian customers and delivery schedules?" click

(Overseas) "Oh, look, some lazy fucker in Kansas left PC Anywhere listening for connections so they could throw the switch on a power distribution junction (or whatever it's called) in bumfuck, KS from home during covid. Think they need power in Wichita?" click

Not only this, but I believe that different countries have amounts of personal data on foreign citizens and have the same ability to seriously fuck up people's digital lives.

As someone that has cyber attacked you in the past I find your actions of cyber attacking me disgusting and frankly horrific. Stop immediately so I can continue to cyber attack you in peace. Both parties probably.

Every single day, major tech companies, defense and aerospace contractors, and government organizations get thousands of hacking attempts from China. At some point the leader in cybersecurity and tech needs to show script kiddies who the real boss is.

I’m sus that they’re even bringing it up because every country with half a budget has been sending out cyber attacks since cyber attacks were a thing. It’s like the chinese government is about to use it as an excuse to what they’re about to do next like the US did with the weapons of mass destruction in iraq.
