I have Kerio Personal Firewall installed and I am using a DSL broadband service which is left turned on 24/7. Occasionally I receive this message .. Incoming Connection Alert! Time: 04/March 2003 08:34:01 Remote: 126.96.36.199 - ICMP  Echo Request Details: Someone on address 188.8.131.52 wants to send ICMP packet to your machine Details about application: tcpip kernel driver What is this btw? Does it mean that there is someone who's running probably a port scanner .. or some kind of scanner to detect who's online and looking for victims with certain vulnerabilities? Appreciate if someone could help me in this ..
