Port 445
« on: May 28, 2003, 20:03 »
I've had about 20 probes on port 445 this evening :(

It looks like there's a new round of DDOS attacks going on.

Is anyone else getting this and does anyone know virus/trojan is causing these recent attacks?

I wonder if this is the Deloder worm?  It's been around since mid March and has been slowly spreading.

It certainly looks like it Clive  >:( Thank goodness for ZoneAlarm :D

I'm up to 30 probes from different IP addresses now :(

Let's hope that all the security measures our hosts have recently taken will protect us on this occasion.

We'll be OK on that score Clive. Our web hosts wouldn't use crappy Microsoft servers if Bill Gates paid them ;) 8)

Now that i've bothered to look it seem i've had a few probes on port 445 in the last few days.
It's nice to be wanted  ;D

And to think a lot of my friends don't even know what a firewall is let alone use one  :o

Scary isn't it? :(

I sometimes think people ought to have a "driving test" before being allowed to own a computer. Only trouble with that is that I'd be done for being drunk in charge of a PC :P :drunk:
