I'm trying to drop all icmp/ping packets on my Debian box in the US.
I'm in Australia.
So I've added this rule to my Iptables script:
/sbin/iptables --append INPUT -p icmp -s ! 127.0.0.1/32 -j DROP
This works fine from my side.
I'm unable to get any Ping responses.
However some are still getting through.
How do I know ?
Because I'm using 'Snort' to packet sniff and trigger alerts.
Here is the Snort log alert.
[**] ICMP PING CyberKit 2.2 Windows [**]
10/08-22:42:48.897689 22.214.171.124 -> 126.96.36.199
ICMP TTL:114 TOS:0x0 ID:10694 IpLen:20 DgmLen:92
Type:8 Code:0 ID:768 Seq:59374 ECHO
How can I make it so my machine replies to *no* icmp packets ?
I've even gone and installed CyberKit on an old Windows box to
see if I could generate and alert but it didn't work.
So I don't understand how my icmp packets are denied but not
188.8.131.52 in the above log sample.
