F-Secure port scanning/try to connect to our network, how can we stop this?
The ip address
continously try to connect to our network, trying to open random ports: 64946, 64947, 57208, 54954 etc.
These ip adresses maintaned by some German F-secure company. Obviously we drop all these connections.
How can we stop F-secure trying to penetrate our network?!
It looks like your clients are using ORSP function, but dropping some part of the communication.
The packages sent from our ORSP servers might then be wrongly interpreted as port scan.
Please refer to this article to allow the necessary IP-range from your network.
We are using only client security with policy manager. So we are not a subscriber for cloud security.
We are allowing outbound connections, this is not problem.
All of the clients and servers updating perfectly.
What is strange that packets comming from your update services as inbound connection attempts through the wan port.
So the f-secure update servers try to directly connect to our server, this should never happen.
Here is a sample log from the firewall:
09:27:31 firewall,info dropped input: in:ether1-gateway outnone), src-mac 00:25:2e:0e:33:77, proto TCP (RST), 220.127.116.11:80->[our fix wan ip address]:52668, len 40
ORSP is one of the many feature included in Client security.
As mentioned in the previously shared article :
"The F-Secure Object Reputation Service Platform (ORSP) is a component in F-Secure's reputation technologies, and is hosted within the networks in the F-Secure network ranges listed above. HTTP access is required for these addresses."
You can try to temporarily disable ORSP as follows, to check that there is no actual port scan coming from our IP addresses.
In the Policy Manager console in advanced mode, in the Policy tab, go under F-secure Real-time Protection Network Client>Settings and set both of the following settings to "no": "Participate in the real-time Protection Network" and "client is enable". Then distribute the policy to the affected clients.
Note that it is not advised to disable these settings for extended period of time as it hinders the products functionality.6 1Like
