Port Scan Attack. Blocking 3-5 Every Minute.
Hello. I have Symantec Endpoint Protection. I'm not very computer savy, but ever since 4/25/2010 since around 10:50 P.M. Eastern Time symantec version 12.1.671.4971 was reporting in my task bar Blocked port scan attacks. I was and still am recieving attempts that are being succesfully blocked every minute.
These scans happen every minute from the same IP Addresses: 192.168.1.3 and others. The maximum KB it would display would fill up so fast I kept clearing the page even though it is blocking them all. How do I block IP addresses and block ports, Or is there a way to turn off certain ports or hide myself so that I recieve less attacks. They haven't stopped yet and it is making me nervous. I'm running Spybot, AVG, and Symantec. How do I block certain ip addresses from attacking me.
Ive done research at these websites for information. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Who do i need to contact to report the scanner to stop recieving port scans and security breach attempts?
