Hello all.

Although theyare being blocked and i dont need to worry im just curious as to what the hells going on?

Last Thursday i was online for an hour and i had over 300 "attempted attacks" on a port that is typically used by a Trojan but cannot remember its name.

what the hell is going on all of a sudden? Dont hear a peep out of NIS05 for ages and no its constantly flowing.

For not knowing much about computers could some1 take a moment to explain what happening and why all of a sudden its happening?

Basically you have nothing to worry about because the NIS 05 Firewall has detected and stopped a possible Trojan intrusion. The fact that it has happened a lot is because you are being targeted by a Hacker. Do these messages from NIS occur only if you are visititing a particular internet site?
