Firewall blocking +net users

My firewall appears to be blocking attempts to access my PC.
It quotes the Source DNS as auser.plus.com.
As there are several different addresses, is this someone trying to access my PC from the plusnet customer base ?

Advice would be appreciated.

This is most likely to be virus infected PC's trying to spread their nasties. The owners of these systems are more than likely blissfully unaware that their systems are affected. This is one of the joys of being online. :roll:

Fortunately your firewall seems to be doing its job and as such you have little to worry about.

Thanks for that.

Be good if the users not protecting themselves did so, as number of attempts blocked seems to be rising.

the thing is thedevines, people arnt educated about these matters in alot of cases and are running there systems without firewall and anitvirus programs.

I can see the attempts in my routers logs as well from abotu 8 ~9 different plusnet ip addresses.
