    I keeps seeing UDP port scan in mine. It says that the attacker is temporarily blocked. Comodo says that the strength is at excellent and I have the firewall set to custom. So is it blocking this attack or just temporarily?

    u want to permanently block the attacker? why?

    comodo already protects you and the hacker may very well change IP.

    How long would be a safe enough time? I have it set to 10 mins now. Would 30 mins be good?
