Freenas - Does this mean someone FTP'ed my data away?

Hi,

I was going through some of my freenas server logs - specifically in the var/logxfer area. I have a ton of log entries like this:

Code:
Thu Mar 05 09:09:44 2020 0 10.36.42.227 2362513 /mnt/Pool/Shared/VM_Desktopfolder/Cruise_2019/Screenshot_20190415-131124.png b _ o r root ftp 0 * c
Thu Mar 05 09:09:44 2020 0 10.36.42.227 3902071 /mnt/Pool/Shared/VM_Desktopfolder/Cruise_2019/MVIMG_20190419_200800.jpg b _ o r root ftp 0 * c
Thu Mar 05 09:09:44 2020 0 10.36.42.227 4430738 /mnt/Pool/Shared/VM_Desktopfolder/Cruise_2019/2019-04-13_14.48.23-1.jpg b _ o r root ftp 0 * c
Thu Mar 05 09:09:45 2020 0 10.36.42.227 4369141 /mnt/Pool/Shared/VM_Desktopfolder/Cruise_2019/IMG_20190414_181431.jpg b _ o r root ftp 0 * c


I did change the IP slightly - but the IP says it is in California & I am on the east coast. Would this mean my freenas box was accessible to the outside world, someone copied the data, and may or may not still have access?

Any help would be great & I can look elsewhere if needed.

Thanks,
Rich

It certainly looks like those entries are indicating that there was an FTP transfer of the listed files to the listed IP address... as root... so if it wasn't you, things don't look good for your privacy.

Do what you can to confirm the true location of the IP address (I guess you put the 10 at the front, but if not, it might be less concerning).

Hi - I think that is something I can trace internally. Is there another spot i can download logs of all logins/ip's? I would also like to see if Iscsi was ever configured, snapshots sent offsite, etc. Is there somewhere I can dig though the logs to find that?
