Default Attacked!

Every time I go on the net, my Frewall (mcaffee) tells me that someone's attacking my computer using a port scanner.

It's always the same as well, Planet Online Ltd (in amsterdam) and it's not a rare occasion, every five minutes.

Firstly, does anyone else get attacked by these and secondly, can anyone tell me why they're doing it?

maybe there is a program one your computer that has something to do with it, as long as McAfee blocks it you will be fine.

Yeah, it stops the attack but it just pops up again and again ...... and again and again and again and I'm getting really annoyed!

But like the other's said, if mc affee is reporting on this, you should'nt worry too much.[/QUOTE]...This is fucking funny....
Sure it's called a port scan, but black hat's aren't the ONLY ones scanning for security holes, gray and white can and will also. Don't be such an idiot.
