I set up a IRI full node on my VPS. installed with IRI 1.4.2.1. From two days ago, I saw that my neighbor nodes number is increase to 30+ (the normal value is 7, as my iota.ini configured.)
those node's ip like such  31.13.85.* , or *.sl-reverse.com etc. Has anyone met the same problem? how to prevent it?

Thanks for the post.

Apparently this is a known issue. Assuming that node operators deny remote executions of addNeighbor api calls as usual with the --remote-api-limit flag, it's not actually new nodes adding themselves without permission. I'll copy/paste the full explanation over from the IOTA discord when it's posted.

Same problem here. I got two new neighbors since latest milestone. My nodes API port is not accessible from outside. So I have no idea how they got added.
