I'm getting these strange history logs from Norton, they go like this:
Rule "Default block EPMAP" blocked (78, 152, 198, 40), port dcom(135), inbound tcp connection. There are many of these happening every few minutes.
I'm also getting some saying "Microsoft windows 2000 SMB" blocked on port (445)inbound tcp connection.
Can anyone explain whats going on?

Those are Firewall Rules that symantec put in to Block, because they are Ports used by Attackers. Please do not Remove these Rules, otherwise your computer will become Infected.

If you are worried, I would suggest Running Norton LiveUpdate and doing a Full System Scan if you're worried, dis-connected from the Internet, but this is normal to see this. Norton is Protecting you!
What Norton Product and Version are you using?

I'm using Norton 360 version 22.214.171.124. I ran live update did the full scan and nothing was found. If you say the logs are normal then I'll forget about them, they just looked a bit odd .Thanks.
