    hey well over the last month ive had a cuple of virus alerts from norton. it says nmap null scan and that it was blocked. what is happening? i no if it says its protected then it is protected but im scared about it :( does it mean somebody is trying to get into my computer? and i dont think the ip is in england. does a hacker change their ip address so they are not found out something? what could be the causes of this? pornograffy, websites or just people?

    i really need advice please
    thx
    p.s these are the only times its happened in all time ive had a computer

    Hi and welcome to TSG.
    Post a Hijack this log..a log expert will check it.

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en...HJTInstall.exe

    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click Edit > Select All> Edit > Copy to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Paste the log in your next reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    nmap is a just a more sophisticated ping. It can identify open ports, and identify what OS a machine is running from various tcp/ip signs. It is a scan, not an attack. Nothing damaging can be done with nmap. But beware that the first steps in a attack is to scan a system to identify weaknesses.

    If you dont have a router, then get one. The network configuration should look like this
    modem -> router -> PCs

    Routers use Network Address Translation (NAT), so that your networks internal IP address are translated into a external ip address. Some will enforce the rule - what has gone out is allowed in. So lets say you use your browser to go to Google, then traffic from Google is allowed back in. If you didnt go to Google, Google cannot contact you. Basically then it protects you from direct attacks comming from your modem.

    If you're connected wirelessly to your router, please ensure you have enabled WPA encryption and disable the router from broadcasting your SSID. Encryption protects you from someone 'sniffing' out the contents of your transmission. Disabling SSID broadcast makes your network invisible. If your router doesnt support WPA and only has WEP, then I would get a new one that does, as WEP can be broken into in a few minutes.

    Usually nmap will not be able to get past your router to your PCs, so I am worried that the attacker has attached to your internal wireless network and started scanning. In that case I would change the routers broadcast name, update the rest of the PCs to use that SSID and then turn off the broadcasting.
