    I seem to be getting a lot of hits which my firewall has stopped. I have been online for about 10 minutes and alread have been hit 93 times!:eek:

    Has anybody else noticed this?

    Everyday.

    As long as the firewall is blocking it, I wouldn't worry.

    i overcome this problem by turning off logging :)

    at the end of the day, if the firewall's stopped it, it's done it's job without giving me a paranoia log ;)

    How's this for paranoia: If someone or something does get into your computer, you have no way of knowing. If the firewall failed to prevent it, what indication do you have that someone got in or not? Spoooooky...

    What's the worst they could do though, steal your paypal password and credit card numbers when you order something?

    :D

    I agree, a little scary if logs are disabled...
