Re: Web Attack NIS Alerts

You don't want to stop the alerts because it is showing that Norton is doing its job of protecting your system. The attacks are from outside your system.

This warning is coming from some page you have visited that has some malicious code. I would try clearing your browser cache and history and restarting your computer.

If you are seeing any strange pop ups or other strange behaviour in your browser, I would suggest a second opinion scan using the FREE version of Malwarebytes. You can find it here http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

Do not accept the offer of the free trial of the full version.

Re: Web Attack NIS Alerts

Do you find malware by Norton full scan and/or by Malwarebytes full scan...?
Do you continue to receive IPS Alerts...?
Do you want your machine checked for malware....

Re: Web Attack NIS Alerts

If i keep getting Alerts does that mean i could be infected even with the full scans?

Re: Web Attack NIS Alerts

The attacks are not coming from anything on your computer. They are coming from the internet. There are always bad guys scanning the internet for unprotected computers. They are not targeting your specific IP, but probably a range of IP addresses that happens to contain your IP.

The good news is that norton has blocked these attempts to connect to your computer. So nothing to worry about.
