During a recent check on my Norton Internet Security, it said that I had had a number of 'recent intrusion attempts' and 'attempted attackers', and it gave me a detail of the 'most frequent attacker'. At the same time, Norton showed that another attempt was being made by this attacker.

I hold my hand up to being one of those people who like to have the security of Norton, but don't know the first thing about the technicalities! However, I immediately ran SpyBot, removed everything that was listed, then rebooted my machine. Everything now seems OK.

My question is, is there any way that I can find out who this 'most frequent attacker' is? The numbers given, don't mean a thing to me: 82.43.177.34

Many thanks.

Wow! Many thanks for that extremely fast reply!

Now I'm not sure whether I should be worried or not!!! I've only been getting these 'attacker' messages quite recently, although I've been with BlueYonder for a long time. Don't know what's going on, so I suppose I should just be grateful that my Internet protection appears to be working properly!

Thanks again for your help.

I believe that Blue Yonder started pinging their customers in the wake of the MSBlaster virus to see if their customers were adequately protected, and if they weren't, they warned them about the vulnerability. obviously you are :D
