Thread: Sygate Firewall Attacks

  1. #1
    i dont know if this happens to anyone else but surprising in the last 24 hours i have had about 40 'critical' attempts on my pc according to sygate; intrusion detected and active response. i mean i have never had this before so many times. before it was a few times in a week. should i be scared about this and make evasive manoeuvres or just sit down and wait until im conquered by the enemy.

    a lot of ppl, misunderstand what a lot of these attacks are

    some can be auto upload software trying to check its version, some can be just normal router traffic and isp connection traffic

    if you have a few programs installed with atuo update features you should get quite a few knocks on the door

    norton a/v will check its software at least everyday if not more, as well as windows updater

    its more important to recognise numerous attacks from one source, as this will eithr be a deliberate attack ( hack ), dos ( denial of service ) attack or a trojan, and thats what you need to defend yourself against

    even that annoying windows messenger service popup window that come up is seen as an attack, but its just spam

    I get port scan attack every x min. Like delphin460 mentioned, not all of these attacks are real attacks, like someone trying to scan for proxies could be seen as port scanner.

    Use Sygate&#39;s Advanced Options to block the IP. Ensure you backtrace the IP and run a whois to make sure it&#39;s not something you&#39;re running yourself.

    I did, but the IP is changing (changes everytime you open/close internet). I can&#39;t block the first blocks of the ip, because the person is from my ISP. Backtracing showed no resluts, since he/she scans and turns off computer. changing ips are not included in the whois db.
