Auto-Allow hack?? What the heck?
April 29, 2010 07:29AM
Hey Guys,

few minutes ago I noticed PB saying something about "Auto-allow hack" in category Range from 0.0.0.0:68 to 255.255.255.255:67. What does that mean?

Can you post a screenshot?




This business is binary. You're either a one or a zero.

ISTR MarkSide mentioned having to do something internally to prevent certain ports/addresses from being blocked by the bogon list. DHCP [ports 67,68, broadcast to 255.255.255.255] would fit that description.

Unfortunately, it could also be something completely different sad smiley

That auto allow hack is so that PeerBlock can function properly at startup with updating the lists.

It's on the todo list to turn it into a proper fix.

I noticed the auto-allow hack occured twice yesterday and today allowing connection from Source 0.0.0.0.68
to destination port 255.255.255.255.67, but not during startup.

Typically this traffic is related to normal DHCP operation and is not an attack.
