For 2 days now my computer has been under attack.
See a screen shot of Avast message--

Posted Image

So far the attacks have not succeeded.
They can't get past the firewall.
Or past Avast...

I was wondering if anyone else has been under attack?

I guess this is the right area to post this in.
I live in Virginia,USA.

Mod Edit: Topic moved to a more appropriate forum - QM7

Network shield is meant to block known internet worms, "NETWORK SHIELD: BLOCKED "DCOM EXPLOIT" - ATTACK FROM" basicly means avast has blocked one (dcom exploit) and you are protected/safe.
