IP Hijacked

By milkybarkid86 ·
Hello all,

The last 3 days on my network have been chaos. I have had 6 ip hijacks, after changing the users ip the old one continues to be active. I found that there was activity through ICMP. i did a little reading and found that it is possible for a cable modem to connect through our internet router and basically hijack IPs. Are there any tools that can be used to locate the external intruder and block them (firewall did not work) or could this possibly be a virus.

any help is appreciated

make sure you block any unnecessary port. you can use the advanced configuration in the firewall or just edit the iptables if you are using linux.

have you try ip routing analysis? but if you using SSL, the hijack cannot be done. if i am not mistaken
