Intrusion attempt

  hoverman 17:07 30 Jan 2004

Norton Internet Security has just blocked an intrusion attempt to my PC. A trace found it originated from Helsinki Television. Why would a TV company want to gain access to my computer? Or could it be someone using a false identity?

Not sure if I've got this right but some servers look for gateways and they can go thro pc's (if they've got open ports). Or it could be a hacker in Finland TV.

It is nothing to do with hacking. Helsinki TV probably have a server hop. Turn off the alerts as they are utterly useless. You have more chance of winning the lotto every month than being hacked on a home computer.
