I have Norton 360 installed, and it is updated and ran regularly. From time to time, an intrusion attempt is blocked and logged, and I am notified of the same. Imagine my horror when Norton was reporting that my computer as the "Attacking Computer".
What does this mean?

Hi David, That Post is moved now to N360 here so we can help Librarian here to fix his issue.
Can you please give more info like which program or exe is blocked?
You can see that in more detail when you get the alert or you can check that in HISTORY.
May I know the Norton Version you have in the computer and have you done a FULL System Scan Recently ?

Since there have been no responses since I posted the detailed message, am I just to *assume* this is nothing to worry about? Or should I call the Norton Help Desk?

Since Quads was about to help, but thought he was not needed he has not followed this thread. Send him a PM and ask him to follow this thread.
