Check And Prevent Ddos Attack

May 25, 2009

While working with different issues, I have seen that many clients complaining about ddos attack on their server. So, I am posting here some useful commands to check and prevent ddos attack.

First of all when you see that your site's or server speed is very slow even though there is not much load on your server, you can guess it might be ddos. Then run 'top' command and see which processes is more, if those are httpd then fire following command
which will show how many active connections your server is currently processing.
netstat -n | grep :80 | wc -l
netstat -n | grep :80 | grep SYN |wc -l

The first command will show the number of active connections that are open to your server. The number of active connections from the first command is going to vary widely but if you are much above 500 you are probably having problems.If the second command is over 100 you are having trouble with a syn attack.

netstat -anp |grep ‘tcp|udp’ | awk ‘{print $5}’ | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

That will list the IPs taking the most amounts of connections to a server.

use follwoing command to block a ip with iptables on server


service iptables restart

service iptables save

You can place ip's which you want to block in hosts.deny

vi /etc/hosts.deny

httpd: IP

write and quit


Then KILL all httpd connection and restarted httpd service by using following command

killall -KILL httpd

service httpd startssl


This are all the step to check and prevent ddos on your server.

Being Ddos'd By A U.K Ddos Protection Company -

Nov 7, 2008

it's come under my attention that has been ddosing me today since morning from the ip:

What's so ironic about it is that the ip is from a UK DDOS protection site so i'm expecting some email with their services in the next hour or so. Stay clear of them they are fakes and e-terrorists.

How To Check Load Via Ssh And Check Files Causing Load

I want the ssh codes for 2 different set of control panels, one with cpanel+whm and other with kloxo+hypervm

and I would also know how to check the files causing the load, such as some files could have been interrupted while processing, so they could be causing load some times, so I want to stop such processes if any are running on the vps on my friends accounts

How To Check Ram

Jun 7, 2007

Let's say I have a VPS with 512 MBs of RAM.

How do I check in shell that this is indeed the case?

I read in some places that "top" and "free -m" and such can help.

But these gave me way more than 512.

Here is the output from my "free -m". Total shows here 3886 MBs of MEM??? That is almost 4 Gigs. Please someone explain this.

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3886 3721 164 0 17 542
-/+ buffers/cache: 3161 724

CSF Security Check

Apr 20, 2009

I'm running CSF on a Cpanel server and have questions about new features in CSF

Apache Check

Check Apache weak SSL/TLS Ciphers (SSLCipherSuite)


Cipher list []. Due to weaknesses in the SSLv2 cipher you should disable SSLv2 in WHM > Apache Configuration > Global Configuration > SSLCipherSuite > Add -SSLv2 to SSLCipherSuite and/or remove +SSLv2. Do not forget to Save AND then Rebuild Configuration and Restart Apache, otherwise the changes will not take effect in httpd.conf

Can someone explain this in laymen terms? I know this is new in Cpanel. I'm already running Apache 2.2, PHP 5.2.9 with suPHP enabled and mod_security as well (these rules: [url]

Also, what exactly are these CSF checks?

Check csf PT_SKIP_HTTP option
This option disables checking of processes running under apache and can limit false-positives but may then miss running exploits

Check csf SAFECHAINUPDATE option
This option closes a window of opportunity that opens when dynamic chain updates occur

Unsubscore Check

Apr 11, 2008

I recently added to my email server. I only have that one and the SpamHaus (Zen) activated.

I am able to see the SpamHaus listed on DNSStuff and on SpamHaus website that the person trying to email me is not listed.

So I have to think that it is list. But what domain name can I enter into the browser to check this list? does not work. A little searching led me to lashback, but the IP is not listed there either.

CPU Usage Check

Nov 25, 2008

Few days ago I had a problem with my httpd. I finally nailed it down and came on a conclusion that my MaxClients were set too low so I had to set it to high number and it seems like that the proble of "Network Timeout" had been resolved but now the problem is still continued. Here is what I think is wrong

Cpu(s): 1.5%us, 0.4%sy, 0.0%ni, 96.7%id, 0.3%wa, 0.3%hi, 0.8%si, 0.0%st
The 96.7%id always stays above 90% is that bad and how do i fix it?

How To Check Who Is Using MySQL

Jan 29, 2007

I have a problem where mysqld is using 95 - 97% CPU usage all the time.

How can I see what user is causing this ? I have installed mytop but when I use it I get


[root@server1 ~]# mytop
Cannot connect to MySQL server. Please check the:

* database you specified "test" (default is "test")
* username you specified "root" (default is "root")
* password you specified "" (default is "")
* hostname you specified "localhost" (default is "localhost")
* port you specified "3306" (default is 3306)
* socket you specified "" (default is "")

The options my be specified on the command-line or in a ~/.mytop
config file. See the manual (perldoc mytop) for details.

Here's the exact error from DBI. It might help you debug:

Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I really need to track down the culprit!

Root Kit Check On Vps

May 6, 2007

Am am running through a checklist of to-do's on a new VPS I just received. I haven't used it in a production environment yet.

While doing a root kit check I got these lines back that perturb me.

Checking `bindshell'... INFECTED (PORTS: 465)
Checking `lkm'... You have 103 process hidden for readdir command
chkproc: Warning: Possible LKM Trojan installed

how serious the implications are of those lines? And should I expect this on a machine that has no traffic and is a fresh install?
