what it mean?(instrusion attempts)what the hell is doing in my pc?
Man ! rajas .. you post a screenshot of desktop for everything.
Just in case you didnt know .. ALT+PrintScreen takes the screenshot of only the current window.
I think the Firewall is treating connection attempts from BSNL as threats. The IP shown there belongs to BSNL's range. I dont think there's anything alarming. But keep your firewall ON.
But the ip changes from time to time...And it is not my ip....
Dood hav u tried zone alarm firewall
i used to get similar messages with Avast and my airtel connecn.....
after zonealarm nuttin seems to be d prob!!!
No i dont use zone alaram..
its not a PROBLEM !!!
the fact that is that the firewall is WORKING and thats y it shows that msg
otherwise it could mean catastrophe for u
basically its blockin hacker intrusions ..
blockin ppl from gettin into ur system
so thats a good thing !!!! theres no solution to this !!!
the ip shown is the ip of the "hacker"
How to find it is the IP of hacker can u help me????
Check the logs or something similar for that piece of software.Forgive me but i'm not acquainted with Norton & its products.
The source IP should be the Ip of the remote computer & the destination IP will be your NAT'ed private IP or dynamic public IP.
Like I told u b4, Zonealarm is THE BEST whether u like it or not!!! So, I am telling u 4 da last time, trash that NIS, nd go 4 ZA. Cheers....
no actually zone alarm SUX
yeah u heard me right .. it hurt me as much as it does anyone else ... even more
try the firewall tests
zap failed 2 from the first 3 ..and thats when i just quit even testing it !!
zone alarm apparently has a very bad outbound protection !!! acc. to the tests that is
very very disappointing results
Theraven can u say how do u find that the IP of the hacker's???
woooof .... what am I seeing here !!
raven saying ZA sux !! .. now that's interesting .. 0_o
and rajas ...
It used to happen to my friend all the time ..
We're inside a LAN and share files using P2P softwares (back then it was Shareaza)
and everytime somebody else's shareaza tried to connect to his computer (while his shareaza was OFF) he used to get an "intrusion attempt".
The firewall treated an outside IP trying to connect to port 6999 (or whatever) as an intrusion attempt.
So, if anybody tries to connect to you through a closed port .. you'll get such a warning.
What I am trying to say is that, these warning you see may not be actual intrusion attempts.
And even if they are ... just chill out ...
as raven said ... your firewall is UP and working .. relax.
jeez how many times do u need to be told !!!
the ip that is shown .. is the ip of the hacker
its right there in front of u
u only said the ip keeps changing
that is the ip of the intruder !!!!
ur ip is gonna reamain constant unless u have dial up
and plz dont use bold the next time .. we can all read
When i use both windows and norton firewall i dont get such intruder.only i get when i use norton firewall....
eh ? u dun get on norton firewall but u get it when u use norton firewall ??
anyways i dont know what u mean dude
the point is that the fact its reporting it is a good thing cuz its actually blocking it
Well,could you please tell us what tests u used?
U see I used a s/w called LeakTest and also an online test(sorry forgot the actual URL) and found that the first ~1040 ports are safe (Absolutely safe was how the test put it)
Maybe it was the firewall inside the Huawei modem of mine
And if ZA Pro is bad,could u suggest another Firewall?
http://www.firewallleaktester.com/ go there and take the tests
i took the first 3 and passed only the first one
so i just quit
till i get a better one
jetico seems nice , batty has been testing it ..
but i just cant get myself to leave ZAP yet
modems dont have firewalls btw
DO post ur results with the firewall leak tests ..
maybe i'll sticky a topic in software section for ppl to post their results ...
look out for it ...
let this thread continue .. we'll have the firewall discussion in another thread .
All the tests but one when run managed to trigger alerts from ZA Pro (version 6.0.667.000) which indicate that indeed my system is safe
And well,the other test (where packets are sent from my PC) that managed to bypass the firewall,is because I have set the TCP/UDP ports as open to enable Shareaza.
Maybe u shud try with the latest version of ZA Pro or someone prolly shud try these tests with ZA Personal edition and post the results here.
plz post in the firewall leak test thread i sticked in REVIEW section
@rajas .. if i get it righ u mean when u use both together no alert
when only norton then u do right ?
thats cuz windows firewall is inbuilt into the os
it blocks it before norton can ... hence norton does not detect the intrusion cuz as far as it is conecerned there is no intrusion
i hope thats clear now
