some intruders out there trying to plant a Trojan.
have a look at this link to give you some idea of Ports and what the popular Trojans are and what Ports they try and attack.
Then go to
and do a Port scan to determine what if any Ports are shown as open.
If you have Ports open or just 'closed' instead of 'stealthed', contact the folks at Sygate for instruction on how to better secure your PC.
Try not to contact your ISP.
Like the responders here, they may not have all the information concerning how to properly stealth your PC.
I am new to firewall(Sygate5.5)I keep getting port scans from my isp.I questioned why and sent logs to show results in return this is this latest answer I recieved from my ISP
"These scans are simply 'background noise' of the internet and will always occur. They are the result of infected machines still trying to propigate.
If you provide detailed firewall logs, we may identify those that are infected and notify them. As long as your system is fully updated with
microsoft security patches and latest virusdefinitions, virtually all of this traffic is harmless"
Window ME Updates
Spybot search & Destroy
Adware personnel se 1.05
And numerous others for spot checks including Housecall and Panda online scanners
As I said earlier I am not familiar with firewall but this sounds like a lot of foolish double talk to me.
Would someone enlighten me on the contents of this message.
