Computer under attack? How to stop it?
Ok the basics I use windows Vista heome premium with the Vista service pack 1 I run NAV2008 ( I will be upgrading soon to NIS2009) on a DSL connection on 24/7
In the activity logs I notice MANY entries as follows
Unused port blocking has blocked communications.
Inbound TCP connection.
Remote address,local service is 125.211.***.5*, *78*. (I * out some of the numbers)
Now this "address" seems to be attempting to connect to my PC over and over again, trying different ports and often the same port multiple times. Also seem to get the same activity from this other address 218.10.*1*.**6 and 88.152.***.***
I checked them out on webyield, but can get no handle on what they are. I think they come out of China though
Just concerning because there are several of these addresses that seem to try to connect to me every day, many times a day.
Some days very heavy others not.
Looks like my NAV 2008 inbound firewall is blocking it which is GREAT. My questions:
1.My concern is what if it reaches a port that is used such as port 80? Would it be able to connect then? Or would other Norton NAV2008 features block it?
2. Are others getting activity from the same addresses?
