http://serverfault.com – I have free server at HP cloud, and I am receiving scans from them like this. It is from 15.185.11.100 and reverses to internal-scanner.ops.uswest.hpcloud.net. I have been told numerous times that this kind of scanning is not right, so I cant do this myself in my network. Is this really OK? Basically scanning services running on my own server as well desktops.
