Hello. Lately Kaspersky internet security is blocking someone from entering my computer.
Kaspersky gives this notice:
'2007-5-12 14:43:01 Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern! Attacker's IP address: xxx.xx.xxx.xx. Protocol/service: UDP on local port 1434. Time: 2007-5-12 14:43:01'
Of course the date and time is different each time.
It's always: 'Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern' and always port 1434.
Is there a way of closing this port or -even better- setting this port into stealth mode?
Thanks...

These types of attacks are not unusal and they can randomly hit all IP's with a certain range on that port. Kaspersky is doing its job by blocking the attack and alerting you. The rest of the alert should indicate the attack was successfully repelled.

Further, the Helkern exploit only infects servers running under Microsoft SQL Server 2000.

Thanks for reply.
That told me a lot of things.
I guess I can only block the attacks.
