9000+ firewall intrusions in 2 days

  dagbladet 22:15 20 Nov 2006

Was having one or two problems with my router so checked the firewall (ZA) while looking at the blocked intrusions feature the number was going up as I watched. 1000, 1020, 1046, 1073 and so on. In 2 days it's now up to 9185 blocked intrusions including 420 'high rated'. I've run Spybot, adaware, ewido, AVG (AV and Spy) and apart from the usual adware stuff nothing unusual. Is this normal?

No. Just AV and firewall on start up.

That's what I was wondering. If I hadn't been fiddling with the router problem I would never have looked at the firewall intrusion stats, therefore I had no idea if this was normal or not. On the plus side over 9000 attempted intrusions blocked by ZA.
