"Somebody is scanning your computer"


Question

Kondrath

Ok so My firewall comes up and it says this:

"Somebody is scanning your computer.

Your computer's TCP ports:

1025, 2745, 5000, and 3140 have been scanned from 69.244.141.199.."

What exactly does that mean?

Stop. Drop. Roll. :p

It could be a number of many things (including someone deliberately scanning you and those specific ports).

Looks like your firewall is doing its job (Y)

Okay? Well I'm HOPING that it was doing it's job. I mean, it could have said that it BLOCKED someone from scanning my computer, instead.

if u r on a network, perhaps one of the other computers was looking around for something...

EDIT: and wat firewall is this? most firewalls would hve blocked the attempt if it comes up with a warning like that

Those are all ports that its possible to exploit (some MS services, plus beagle virus).

Looks like somebody scanning to see if your computer is vulnerable to attack.

Most likely your firewall covered you and you are fine. These are almost always non-personal automated scripts scanning masses of computers.
