hmm wouldnt know as my routers nat would block them, but will test a pc in dmz. But this is the usual result of you using IRC, as some people log IP's and scan the IP block your on looking for someone with that particular trojan.

I haven't used irc in over 2 years, so that rules that out. :lol:

If someone else has used it on +net then they may be doing a scan of the ip range.

well no hits so far but not surprised as your on a different IP range to me. Your on 212.56.*.*, I'm on 212.159.*.*

Likely it is someone on IRC using infected machines aka Bots to scan for more that are infected to do a DDos somewhere. So your firewall is doing its job, log it and do whois lookups and mail the ISP's concerned as some do take action now. As I've had Australian users scanning before and mailed there abuse dept. and have had a report back within a week that the user had been contacted and dealt with, just wish UK ISP's did the same.

Thanks for the info. I'm upto 3476 attempts now so i dont think i'll bother emailing anyone's isp's as i'll be at it for the next 6months or so.

Once again thanks for the info, maybe its time i got +net to change my ip address, ive had it for 12months now i think.
