Drop port scanners
Jump to navigation Jump to search
To protect the Router from port scanners, we can record the IPs of hackers who try to scan your box. Using this address list we can drop connection from those IP
in /ip firewall filter
add chain=input protocol=tcp psd=21,3s,3,1 action=add-src-to-address-list address-list="port scanners" address-list-timeout=2w comment="Port scanners to list " disabled=no
Then you can drop those IPs:
add chain=input src-address-list="port scanners" action=drop comment="dropping port scanners" disabled=no
Similarly, you can drop these port scanners in the forward chain, but using the above rules with "chain=forward".
