I was just browsing the web, when all of a sudden ESET Smart Security lets me know, a port scan is being performed. That's how it looked like:
And from the ESET's logs I can see the IP address which supposedly tried to scan me:
Looking up the IP "188.8.131.52" from a website "ip-lookup.net", the IP is associated with South Korea, while I am in Northern Europe:
A little background information too: I'm using a USB 4G LTE modem and there's no one else on the network besides my laptop.
Why on Earth someone from South Korea would want to scan my ports? Is it something I should be worried about? If it happened just once, should I just forget it and move on?
I've already performed a scan with Adwcleaner and about to perform a scan with MBAM. Maybe I'm just overreacting and it's nothing, but I don't really know a lot about this stuff, so... Would really appreciate your suggestions on the next steps.
update: Same message appeared again some 10 minutes ago from the same IP. I switched to a mobile hotspot to see if that makes a difference.
