Hello. For the past two weeks my router has been telling me I been getting SYN floods and I get disconnected about 7 times a day. Today however I noticed that I had a log that said X-Mas Tree and the source IP is not known on google.

Description Count Last Occurrence Target Source
SYN Flood 4 SAT JUN 06 11:16:38 2009 MYIP:1783
X-Mas Tree 7 SAT JUN 06 12:03:33 2009 MYIP:31541

What the heck is going on? I called Roadrunner and they could not help me...i ran malwarebytes, and now im running my AVG Internet Security ti see if anything is being picked up

P{Lease not that I deleted my IP from the target due to the fact its sensitive information.

I am not an expert on such things, but since the SYN floods are coming from another IP than your own, your computer is probably not the cause of these attacks.
