In any IT system, how do you know if it’s under attack?
That’s really a loaded question. Systems are always under attack. Day and night, whether you’re aware of it or not, people, machines, and programs are hitting any device that can be reached either on the public Internet or on private networks. Old NAT rules on firewalls can be very effective holes to constantly probe a commonly used port on internal servers. Internal employees with computers infected with many forms of malware are hitting every machine on corporate networks in countless businesses all over the world right now.
