I was checking the log of my antivirus, I found in th log:
4/3/2007 10:10:43 PM,"Rule ""Default Windows File Sharing"" permitted (###.##.###.133,netbios-ssn(139)).","Rule ""Default Windows File Sharing"" permitted (###.##.###.133,netbios-ssn(139)).  Inbound TCP connection.   Local address,service is (MYPCNAME(###.##.###.186),netbios-ssn(139)).  Remote address,service is (###.##.###.133,3426).  Process name is ""System""."

now I live in a building where there are 200 pcs on a Lan all start with ###.##.###.XXXX , where XXXX is a fixed number of each user. I dont know the address ###.##.###.133 mine is ###.##.###.186, does it mean someone is hacking mine, as I find the message several times!!, what is this "rule" and how to secure my pc better.

Are all the machines in the network are in the same segment? It looks like someone is trying to access your file shares. I wouldn't call it hacking, just that someone is using a service that your computer has open. You might want to stop sharing your folders if you have no need to do so, or at least protect the shares from outsiders with ACLs.
