I've just formatted my hard drive about a week ago as part of some comp upgrades, and started using PeerGardian along with K++.
When i came in today and checked it after a few hours, i had over 2500 rejected connections for IRC Spybots, all from the one IP over about 5 mins.
If it was only a few or a range of IP's, i'd just ignore it and put it down to random internett a**holes port scanning, but with this many attempts concentrated form the same place in such a short time, i began to think?
Is it likley someone has managed to get something through my firewall and anti-virus in just a week, and they are now trying to connect? Or is even this concentrated an attack just random?
