HELP! Someone Is trying To Hack Into My Computer!
Ok, Ive gotten the usual "A recent attempt to attack your computer was blocked" warnings like everyone else probably has especially when I first bought my computer and signed on everyday. But just in the last week or so Ive been getting this warning a minimum of 20 / 25 times a day from the same I.P addresss. The person is from China and is trying to do a portscan. Thank God for Nortons they're not succeeding obviously but they're so relentless Im afraid they'll figure out a way. My questions are 1. Can I report the continuos attempts to somebody , is there anyplace online where you can report someone trying to hack into your computer? 2. Am I completely safe with Nortons or will this person ever have a chance to break through? and 3. I went into my Nortons security today to try and see if it logged the I.P address anywhere so I could report them but instead found something that allows you to enter I.P addresses of computers you want to restrict any access to your computer, which I'll definitely use after I find out what his I.P is again. After I add this persons I.P address to that list what exactly if anything EXTRA will this do to keep this person from breaking through?
Also, since this started I have been having alot of problems with my computer like it not connecting to the internet. I'll be connected and can play downloaded programs but if I try and search the internet it will say Im not connected. Also the poker programs I use have been acting funny. I've been having a hard time logging into most of them when I never had problems before. I'll usually get some kind of warning saying im not connected and not until after numerous attempts Ill finally get in. And the weirdest thing thats happened since this started was I walked away from my computer to come back and see an Internet Explorer warning box that had popped up on its own saying something like " You have been logged off of chat because you logged on from another computer". I have no idea where this warning came from or what it was talking about because I dont chat online at all on any sites or servers. So something is definitely going on.
I wish I had the guys I.P address now so I could put it up in this post but I didnt write it down and save it, I just wrote it down yesterday to check it on a I.P locator but forgot to save it. The guy does it atleast 10 or 20 times a day so Im just waiting today for it to happen again so I can get his I.P address and write it down save it and add it to the restricted compter list in Nortons. When I get it Ill come back and post it here so maybe you guys can tell me something about the user.
If anybody has the answers to my 3 main questions .. Please HELP
