i recently installed zone alarm a few hours ago and it has blocked1180 intrusions and 10 of which were serious... all from diffrent IP's what the heck should i do
Nothing... it's working. :)
Just think, if you didn have a firewall, were running XP with no updates.. some of those might have gotten thru.
I updated on 9th July, it has clocked 12,000 attempts. The web is loaded with systems which patrol constantly looking for unguarded, open ports.
Ya, its a good thing you did install a firewall but if it does not include antivirus/spyware
you should get some and run a scan. one of them might have got through before installing you firewall.
