Snort Rules :ET RBN Known Russian Business Network IP UDP

Hi
I know Why Snort is blocking the IP's .
but I am little bit of confused bout Source port and destination port for this attack


have a look bellow 2 log


15        2        UDP        ET RBN Known Russian Business Network IP UDP (238)         Misc Attack        192.168.1.67        39817        ->        82.146.55.35        53        1:2406475:193        09/06-15:36:05
16       2       UDP       ET RBN Known Russian Business Network IP UDP (237)       Misc Attack       192.168.1.7       1068       ->       82.146.33.103       53       1:2406473:193       09/06-15:35:54


Here : 192.168.1.67 is our Internal Dns server
and  192.168.1.7 is our Mail server.

in both log is showing , Destination port is 53 and Souce port is our network

to me it like, I am doing an attack to those IP's but snort is blocking those IP .

i just want to get an explanation .. why source port is our and destination port is those Ip .


note : I m not trying to edit or disable rules. here i am trying to understand, how this attack is happening / why source port is mine ?

thanks

they scan for recursive DNS servers. If you do not have one "error" messages are simple background noise.

one src ip is my dns server which is 192.168.1.67
and another one is 192.168.1.7 which is mail server

why src ip is my mail server ?? i am asking for a explanations

no no this is not my ip  !!!!

82.146.33.103

snort is blocking 82.146.33.103 ip as its a attack (rusian network)

what made me surprise is :

Why Source port is my server  ??



15        2         UDP        ET RBN Known Russian Business Network IP UDP (238)          Misc Attack        192.168.1.67        39817        ->         82.146.55.35        53        1:2406475:193        09/06-15:36:05

16        2       UDP       ET RBN Known Russian Business Network IP UDP  (237)       Misc Attack       192.168.1.7       1068       ->        82.146.55.35       53       1:2406473:193       09/06-15:35:54


if you look the above log

in both case ip 82.146.55.35 is the Destination(53) and  192.168.1.67 and 192.168.1.7  is the src .


thats the thing i trying to understand, why src port is our side

if russion network try to look for recursive dns server, then destination port would be us, and source port would be 82.146.55.35 ,

may be it works this way!! but since i dont know.. need an explanations

you need to see why your DNS tries to access spammer and who of your users tries to do this lookup....

Here 192.168.1.7 ( SBS 2003,working as DNS but it has forwarder to 192.168.1.67 )
hence i guess i am seeing both Ips there .


i used pfsense with snort, so pfsense has blocked 82.146.33.103: this anyway .

but question is, why it sending dns query to 82.146.33.103


its not coming from any user computers ....
