Re: Now firewalled but bombarded.

Look, when one of these screens pops up, and it the program or whatever that is trying to connect doesnt look familiar, block it. No harm can be done by doing this, only good. ANd if it is something important that needs the connectionm, or something that you want to have connected, you will probably know pretty quickly.

Re: Now firewalled but bombarded.

Just write down what it says. At the rate you are describing getting them it is probably something you've blocked that shouldn't be.

IF it was say a script kiddie scanning ports looking for open ports that are the standard defaults for the particular trojan he just downloaded (because he's too n00b to own his own vics) he will get detected by your ISP in less than an hour. If you already had such a trojan on your computer more than likely it's gonna be using outbound requests to avoid such persecution, in which case the firewall message wouldn't read remote requests.

but just right down what it says. you should be able to tell very quickly from that info.

and yes you shouldn't blindly add any warning through your firewall. and yes you should be familiar with the program permission/rights in the program list because thats what this is all about.
We all see only that which we are trained to see.

Re: Now firewalled but bombarded.

Ok, as I was reading your comments I recieved three popups. Thats how frequent this is. I dont know screenshots but this is the detail:

Program Control
X High Risk A remote system is attempting to access your computer

Time 6:57 PM
Date 4/1/2006
Protocol TCP (inbound)
Remote Address: :3971
Local Address: :10001
Location: Default

Then what do you want to do and I say BLOCK. They tend to come up in groups with different addresses. Nothing will pop up for a while then I get between 3-8 consecutive popups. Note that my ports 10001-10005 are open for bittornado. So I assume this computer is trying to come in on my port 10001.
