somebody is making flood on me , which means sending syn_ack udp packets randomly , which means his script is making flood on all ports from 0 to 65535 with packet length = 48

Hi skynoc,

Dropping those packages won't help you very much as your bandwidth will still be filled up with crap.
Please contact your ISP as soon as possible, they'll be able to filter the mess on their routers and will be able to keep you online. You can't do much, or anything about this yourself.

Greetings,

LucF

Track him down to a port and take him off the network.  Are you familiar with that process?

sir , the problem is that i m the ISP
the problem is that many networks are flooding on me , so i cant deny these network ,
even i cant deny all ports ,
i have to deny ports with packet length of the flood .
whch means , the flood is sending syn_ack udp packets length = 48
so i have to deny all udp ports on packet length = 48

thanks

I have to admit I'm not sure how to filter on packet length with a Cisco. But still, those packages are send to you, so you're receiving them. Blocking them has exactly the same effect as accepting them.

For what I've found, you can't filter on packet length, but please read my comment above really carefully:
"But still, those packages are send to you, so you're receiving them. Blocking them has exactly the same effect as accepting them."
Please understand that.

What I've found (I can't verify at this moment) is that both the Blaster and the Sasser virus use a packet lenght of 48 bytes, so you're most likely having the same problem as every other ISP. All you need to do to protect your customers from it is blocking port 135 (make sure to note this to your customers as some might need it, if you mention it to them they can reroute their traffic through another port)

Btw, if you want to "block" something, you should get a firewall, not a router. I know this might be difficult for you as you are an ISP but it's surely your best option.

Please review this page on Cisco.com
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5888/products_user_guide_chapter09186a0080236a84.html

There's a "greater" and a "less" parameter, not any precise filterrule on cisco's :(
I'll see if I can find anything else for you.
