    i have been selected for some fool with a scanner as a target.the attacking ip is 174.36.193.171

    i have done all i can to find the origin of this ip but he is behind a firewall and therefore impossiple to track down

    i an getting hit every 3 minutes (Thank god for outpost)
    i have not been scanned like this since the late 90's

    i cannot track this fool down exect for maybe the service provider is SOFTLAYER TECHNOLOGIES INC

    after that my limited experence fails me

    any tech with a few minutes could proberly get the info i need to send a abuse email to the server and perhaps stop this constant scanning

    any help will be thanked

    Keep in mind if your are using P2P software it could be a Media group trying to lock onto a open port.

    As long as it's not disrupting your bandwidth in any way, or affecting anything you do, who cares? Whoever it is is just trying to bother you, and they are succeeding. Just ignore it and let your firewall do it's job. It'll go away eventually...

    Welcome to Wilders Security Forums don Clarke.....

    Port scans are ongoing throughout the Internet. There is no person behind this attack that has singled YOU out individually. In fact there is no Human involved at all.

    The real culprit is an brand new shinny computer sitting on an stand in an air-conditioned room where all the walls, ceiling, and floor are painted white and scrupulously clean.

    The best defense against this type penetration is to place the computer behind an reputable Firewall Router.

    If the computer is already behind an Firewall Router, then the Router is allowing the Port to be open. Perhaps the Router is not setup correctly, or does not support the following:

    The Router should Block Wide Area Network (WAN) requests such as:

    01) - Anonymous Internet Requests
    02) - Multicasts
    03) - Internet NAT Redirection
    04) - IDENT (Port 113)

    Blocking the above at the Gateway or Networks Edge will stop such unwanted infiltration into the Local Network.

    thanks everyone...I.ve done my bit and sent an e-mail to the provider. I'm too old to go on the chase any more....so I will take your advice and let my firewall (Outpost pro) take care of business.
    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone...feels nice here :D
