 Firewalls

I just had my first serious attack since installing Norton Firewall a month or so ago. It was identified as a Backdoor Trojan Horse Program from the UK but through someplace in VA or Delaware. It's easy to over-react, and some attacks are fairly benign--but maybe not. I think that a firewall is good to have.

Ironically the attack came not long after I went on a high traffic discussion board that I seldom even read anymore. I noticed that the board now has a counter that reports registered and non-registered users. I don't know I was identified to the attacker by my presence on the other board.

Tom: I had a Backdoor virus (trojan type), dialed out at around 2:30am. I got up disconnected and it did it again 30 min later. Turned the modem off. You may of had it for awhile. I got Norton Internet Security everyday had a hit. There are also sites that tag you from cookies you have that are not real viruses, but they try to get in protected ports (I think a couple thousand ports on Windows). If you have a cable connections a Firewall is a REAL good idea. Use a Dsl/cable hub with dhcp. The hacks will not know what IP address your PC is using. I assigned randomly to the PC. Thats as good as it gets, unless you want to monitor your ports with some router software....
Your can get the bug from e-mail, File sharing like Napster, Morphus, Limewire, etc. If you surf they will come.
