    Hi guys ...

    I keep getting this alert above stating that "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services.

    Remote point: 202.190.131.251, port 3568.

    Should I allow it? I clicked on deny but it pops up every now and then and I think its coming from my ISP??

    Also getting from Remote point: wbb251.fwa4.jaring.my on the same port.

    Is this a "message" from the ISP itself?

    In short someone in Malaysia is trying to hack into your PC. Do not allow it and report the attempt to your ISP so they can block the Malaysian site.

    It's inbound and it's recommended to allow by my firewall.

    Well, even though the reverse IP whois is pretty obvious, and the trace route that I did to find that out was pretty obvious too, the last thing to do is contact your ISP's abuse department and ask them plain and simple.
