[nycbug-talk] Researching ISP for an IP
Sun Aug 14 00:08:47 EDT 2005
Someone launched a dictionary attack against my machine.
However, I always use IP2Location to see where
the attack is coming from.. just for my curiosity.
This particular IP, 126.96.36.199, was from New York so I figure I would
try to find the ISP to complain.
dig -x reports

188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa. 78337 IN PTR ros75-27.optonline.net.
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;ros75-27.optonline.net. IN A
Tried traceroute and mtr, but got nowhere.
Not even ping did anything when I tried
Is it possibly the attacker just spoofed the IP?
