Quite frequently my Sygate Firewall tells me that my computer is being scanned - For example: "Somebody is scanning your computer. Your computer's TCP ports: 2745, 445, 3127, 6129 and 139 have been scanned from 220.127.116.11." When I do a back trace on it I find it is from various sources but nearly always from RIPE - for instance - today it told me the scan source was here :role: BEZEQINT HOSTMASTERS TEAM address: Bezeq International address: 40 hashacham st. address: Petach Tikva 49170 Israel Can anyone please tell me why someone in Israel is scanning my computer - should I be concerned ? I set my Firewall to "Block All" but the scan still comes through- shown as "minor" on the security log. Any advice or explainations will be appreciated.
This sort of thing worried me when I first installed a firewall. One day alone I had over 1100 access attempts and today I've had 610. Advice from varous sources all said the same thing - don't worry as the firewall is blocking everything. Switch off the pop-up alerts because you could spend almost all day reading them and getting no work done!
