Trojan attacks

  [DELETED] 17:50 04 Nov 2003

Hi all
Just a question. I have Norton personal firewall installed on my XP Home system and get frequent alerts of attempted attacks by a Backdoor/Subseven trojan from various IP addreses. I take it this is normal and the firewall is doing its job. I have scanned my system and cant find any nasties!
Just wondered if this level of attempted attack by a single trojan was normal(once per hour)

Hi Krisspy. Do the trace and you will probably find its your ISP trying to find out if you are still active

Thats Good, Your firewall seems to be working, just let it get on with it and evey time you see the little red ecclemation, say "gotcha"

Norton does warn of Trojans on a regular basis, I personally think it's paranoid. It?s a point that has been raised on here many times & the general consensus is ignore the dire warnings or better still switch them off altogether & sleep easy.
