A friend of mine got some malware on her 2-month-old Win7 laptop, so she went to Bellsouth/Yahoo customer service. They tried to sell her a $450 package for 3 years of virus cleanups. Part of their sales pitch, while they were logged into her computer, was to pop up a list with a bunch of IP addresses on it, claiming that these were the incoming connections for the last 24 hours -- "...and notice how many of them were from outside the US."
This sounds bogus to me. I'm not aware of anything on Win7 that does incoming IP logging on a new, only-slightly-tuned system.
What do you think? Was this real, or fake? (If real, I really need to know how to make use of that log myself.)
