Increase in IPS events

Hi Community,

Just wondering if anyone, or everyone, is experiencing an increase in IPS events on their Fireboxes.

It used to be I would see a dozen or so a month, now I'm almost getting that daily.

Just curious.

    Just curious - any specific signature ID that you are seeing a lot?

    These are the top culprits for the past seven days, with 1133253 being the most detections. It's a Linux or Open BSD exploit.

    Interesting - none of these are recent - not what I would have expected.

    It's not uncommon for attacks to ebb and flow as the folks running the exploits adjust what works vs what doesn't.
