I was on my laptop as usual when norton (yay norton!!!) pops up with this message.
"Risk name: NMap Xmas Scan
Attacking computer: 22.214.171.124
Destination Address: OWNER-VAIO ( 192.xxx.x.xx,(My IP address) 61425)
Source Address: 126.96.36.199
Traffic Description: TCP, Port 51000"
"Network traffic from 188.8.131.52 matches the signature of a known attack. The attack was resulted from System..."
A. Should i be worried
B. Should block port 51000
C. And don't yell at me for this but i have Norton 2010 (about to expire), AVG 9 (not the free version) Microsoft security essentials (Surprisingly really good) and Threatfire (sucks, never detects anything) running at the same time flawlessly.My laptop has no problem running them at the same time and often catches things other programs don't.Will any of those programs do a effective job of stopping intrusions?
