Hi,

Since i turned on my PC this morning my Sygate Personal Firewall kept popping up that someone was scanning my ports.

In the security log viewer i can see that someone is trying to scan all my ports (per 3) with an interval of 2 minutes. All from the same Ip and Mac-adress.
This has been going on for an hour now. I immediatly made a new rule to block every application and protocol for every port on that ip-adres...

I think somebody is hacking me and i don't really know what to do next. I am scanning with adaware and spybot SD now

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You don't have to worry about the scans that Sygate notices, you need to worry about the ones they don't! :smile:

One thing you can do is simply configure the firewall to reject ALL traffic from the IP address that's scanning you.

You do not say what kind of internet access you have, but getting a hardware router/firewall will cut out most of these scans. My software firewall hardly ever goes off.
