Has anybody else noticed just recently that they seem to be getting more attacks logged by their firewall. I used to get hardly any but now I seem to be getting about 6 or 7 an hour, all from different IP addresses, usually attempting to use the Default Block Backdoor/sub seven Trojan Horse.

You use NIS dont you.

NIS detects just about everything and its mother as a Subseven scan. I still havent been able to figure out that one.

Yep, I do. Not so long ago it was telling me that I was getting hacked by a computer with the ip 127.0.0.1!! Obviously I must be hacking myself!

Are you still on with AOL? I remember when I was a couple of years back (Slow Dial up!!) NIS kept reporting that AOL themselves were probing my ports!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
