Saw the below in my logs. I do have network analyzers on my machine, but they were not running at the time. Is my box hosed?  I am seeing this for lsass.exe and svchost.exe

Its a fully patched xp machine with antivirus software. Is someone sniffing my box?

Office communicator is supposed to listen for incoming traffic. Sometimes a firewall needs to be told that certain software is trusted (If you trust it)
