A couple of rather bizarre lines appeared in my logs today:
Jan 10 05:53:11 leviathan named: approved AXFR from
[18.104.22.168].3680 for "irelands-web.ie"
Jan 10 05:53:11 leviathan named: zone transfer (AXFR) of
"irelands-web.ie" (IN) to [22.214.171.124].3680
From what I gather from the scant information I can find on the web, if
this is deliberate it's probably a precursor to a cracking attempt
rather than a heinous plot to nick our domain. In any case, it's not the
sort of thing I like to see appearing in the logs. So:
1. Does anyone know what's happening?
2. Does anyone know how to stop it?
3. What is port 3680?
126.96.36.199 is compuoffice.com ; I imagine they're innocent bystanders
in all this.
