Repeated Intrusion Attacks. How do i stop this? Who can i report to?
Since morning today, my pc has been beseiged with Norton security pop ups - stating "A recent attempt to attack your computer was blocked - view details"
This intrusion attack is repeated and i am looking out for options on what can be done to stop the attacks
The intrusion attacks are being blocked successfully by Norton AV because of up to date - application s/w and virus definitions

(removed)(IP Addr - 22.214.171.124; Port 80)
I checked the details on www.dnstools.com and the details of the search are mentioned in the below mail. Subsequently - i have also e-mailed the below mentioned id's of the web master and the id relating to abuse - informing them of action - if this does not stop.
Can some expert advise me on
A). What needs to be done to stop these attacks from occuring
B). Is there a central body on the internet that takes note of such issues reported by harassed users and takes action against the offenders.
C). How do i ensure - that despite these repeated attacks, the computer continues to remain protected (this is apart from the regular live update and quick/scheduled full scans
Would appreciate a prompt reply to help me resolve this issue
Thx & Rgds
