    Right im getting well annoyed zonealarm pro is constantly blocking hack attempts from a certain IP address, on the lookup it says something like china telecom is there anyway I can report it cus it keeps coming up over and over again on my blocked access attempts list and its been going on for the past 2 days. Whoever it is really must be out to get me because whenever im online it seems they are always trying to get me. Unless this is some sort of false alarm or theres another explanation.

    its probably just a port scan. the hackers set up a whole range of IP addresses and scan them all looking for vulnerable PC's. they are most likely just running the program on a loop. so long as your firewall is working properly and blocking the attempts it should be fine!

    Hey Ant -you gotta relax a bit here, m8 - these "attacks" are a pretty much constant barrage that most of us face on the net on a daily basis. As long as your firewall and AV are tight (or are Ryan :wink: ), then you'll be right. :D

    hehe actually i have turned on the firewall functionality on my router finally, getting fed up customising the ruleset every time i need something, but looking to move to an ISA 2004 box for the learning curve

    for the most part, people behind a natted connection shouldnt be having too much problem with hackers, worms and trojans are the biggest threat to you guys

    You might want to turn down the Alerts setting in ZA, Ant - sounds like it may be set to alert at a low level. Basically, set it to only alert for high risk threats (ie, few). Can't remember off-hand where, but it's in there somewhere.

    HTH :)
