I tire of this crap.

May 12 11:43:51 HD-MCP HD-MCP[30449]: SSL ACCEPT Error [http request] on [::ffff:]

That would be in Russia.

Then there's this one:

May 12 11:42:15 HD-MCP HD-MCP[30449]: SSL ACCEPT Error [http request] on [::ffff:]
May 12 11:42:15 HD-MCP last message repeated 169 times

That's Brazil.

And that's from our great friends the NAFTA folks -- Mexico.

Where's my "nuke the source of that crap until it glows" button?

No, they're not an "innocent" series of accidents.  Not with well north of 100 attempts each within a few seconds.  Nor are they isolated -- that's just a small sample.

Oh, if you want to know why you need something like HomeDaemon instead of software written in a "high level" (high-overhead) language, this sort of garbage would be why -- it laughs such attempts off, even on $35 hardware.

With a "bit" more overhead.... it won't be as non-disruptive of an experience for you.

The only reason I dont have home internet is because, Im worried about privacy. I will not have a smart TV, thermostat or alexa thingy. Will the software you use protect a wi fi router? I want myself and my wife to be able to surf the net and check emails with having to worry that someone is eavesdropping.

Yikes! I thought my SIP trunks were probed excessively until I found a way to hide them behind NAT. I'd see a couple of hundred scans per day, not per few seconds!

I find it interesting that this kind of thing is just considered normal and acceptable, but if you or I or anyone else attempt to Actively discourage this (through any kind of return probing, repeat pinging, etc), well, That's Illegal!

Weve tried the Soap Box, They censored that.
Weve tried the Ballot Box, They stuffed that.
Weve tried the Jury Box, They tamper with that.
All we have left is the Cartridge box.

For those that are trying to learn. Are these random attacks that happen to everyone or do you think they are targeted because you are "out there/here" so to speak?

They look pretty random to me.

The IP address/location of that device is NOT published. Sure, it's able to be figured out, but this isn't like the Ticker site (which IS very "out there") being hit on -- this is a machine behind my firewall with a hole punched in it so it can be accessed remotely.

Winding it down.
