Trouble Brewing? - Port 106 Activity
We received an email enquiry today from Mike asking if we had seen an increase in Port 106 activity.  He indicated that over the last 8 or 9 days he has seen an increase in traffic on port 106.  I looked at the information on this port at our DShield location and found that there is indeed something happening on Port 106.  On December 22 we started seeing an increase in data submissions on this port.  There are some known uses for the port but none of them really make much sense.  So - if anyone out in our viewing audience is seeing increases in Port 106 activity and can get us some data using a netcat listener, we would appreciate it.  We are curious about the traffic and what exactly it is looking for.
