Port scan attack
Posted on 2005-02-28
I have Sygate personal firewall. Occassionally I get a message about a port scan attack and then back trace it to see who was scanning my computer. What can I do then? There are e-mail addresses listed. Should I send them an e-mail asking them what they were doing? Or report them somewhere? What information coulld they get? And what should I have Sygate do to prevent any harm to my computer? What does "Stop all active response" option accomplish? Sorry for all these questions, it's just that I could use a comprehensive intro to this area. Thanks!
