Remote desktop in XP

Hi. I have a linksys router and have my remote desktop enabled on port 3389. However I was checking the log before and noticed an incoming on port 3389 from IP 12.101.184.243 and at the same time an outgoing from the same IP to port 4280. My current IP is 24.200.184.171. I'm just wondering what this means. Was I compromised? Have I been successfully attacked? Just very concerned. Thanks for your time.

If you have any ports open for your own use, they will be compromised. Everybody in the world knows that 24.x.x.x is broadband fast internet connection and are sweeping the addresses just looking for any open ports to exploit. If you don't want to be hacked into, don't open any ports, even for your own use.
