Rogers going after servers again

Reported in another forum ...

Someone was terminated for maintaining a Telnet and SSH server.

I don't know the details on what this person's bandwidth consumption was through these ports, but something tells me he wasn't using them for terminal I/O!

suppose you run your servers on different ports...like i run an ftp on 50021 and web on 50080 and then i have the pointers/links etc point to the right port...think there is still a risk...

I think they look at the out/ingoing packets not only the port so its a risk but I imagine it could fool them

Nice port selection. However, you may want to change them, now that you have published it in the clear.
When it comes to Rogers, one can never be too careful.

Yeah and how exactly is Rogers supposed to match htose port numbers to his name, or his IP or whatnot?

There is no way they can get any info from this site so there is nothing to worry about. They aren't going to go out and block those ports for every person they see going to this site.

You are right, it is impossible to determine his IP from just the ports.

As I indicated earlier;

They may just add those port numbers to their scan range.

I think they scan non-standard ports anyway, so if they happen to scan those ports randomly, they can get you.
