Hi all,
I have recently started using PC cillin firewall and I ran a security check and it tells me that I still have 3 open ports and on 8080 it says possible problems on that port and that they are trojans. All my scans are clear though. Port 23 is possible problems and says something about Unix, and port 80 it says stuff about HTTP. I have had loads of ping attacks and also quite a few net bios ones, but they are not getting through so am I protected?? I have not bothered with a firewall until now, but I was utterly shocked at the number of people trying to get in to my system!! and do not intend to be without one ever again!!
Many thanks in advance for any advice.

:)

If you are worried about something installing itself on your machine then try an online virus scan at:
Symantec/Norton: http://security.symantec.com/defaul...FCSGFZVDTPSOERZ

Panda ActiveScan: http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

Trend Micro HouseCall: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

If you're worried about some ports still being open while you're connected to the web then don't. There has to be some way for the information to reach your browser. It seems like your FW is doing it's job properly, I wouldn't worry so much!

Hope this helps!

:D
