Drop Sync/DDOS Attack

1. Find.. to which IP address in the server is targeted by the ddos attack

netstat -plan  | grep  :80 | awk ‘{print $4}’ | cut -d: -f1 |sort |uniq -c

2. Find… from which IPs, the attack is coming

netstat -plan  | grep  :80 | awk ‘{print $5}’ | cut -d: -f1 |sort |uniq -c

In csf:

vi /etc/csf/csf.conf

SYNFLOOD is disabled by default. If you are not receiving any sort of attack, there is no need to enable it. If you are expecting an attack, enable it and set the rules a bit strict, like
SYNFLOOD_RATE = “5/s”
SYNFLOOD_BURST = “3”
my eg:
SYNFLOOD = “1”
SYNFLOOD_RATE = “30/s”
SYNFLOOD_BURST = “10”

SYNFLOOD

SYNFLOOD is disabled by default. If you are not receiving any sort of attack, there is no need to enable it. If you are expecting an attack, enable it and set the rules a bit strict, like

SYNFLOOD = “1”

SYNFLOOD_RATE = “30/s”

SYNFLOOD_BURST = “10”

i.e. if 30 connections are received from an IP/sec for 10 times, block it. Make sure don’t keep it too strict if you are not receiving an attack else it will generate false positives and will block legit connections.

PORTFLOOD

PORTFLOOD = 80;tcp;100;5,22;tcp;5;300

ie, If an IP makes 100 connections in 5 sec to port 80 (tcp), then it will be blocked from the server and if 5 connections in 300 sec to 22 port.
