  • Warning:NMap Xmas Scan attack from scouting. org

    My Norton Internet Security just notified me of a Medium Security risk from

    Time: 12:14 PM
    Date: 11/21/2009
    Intrusion: NMap Xmas Scan
    Risk Level: Medium
    Protocol TCP
    Attacked Port: 1877

    I would notify the webmaster or IT dept at National if I knew how. Please pass along info if you can. As often stated here, a contact list on the National website would be helpful. I have seen diferent info on this scan attack from it just probing for open ports to something more.

    Nmap is no big deal. It is just a random scan, Just relax. this one of the reasons I consider norton a waste.

    More importantly. Does your computer hook directly to your cable or DSL modem? If it does you should invest in a router, when properly set up it eliminates a lot of these false alarms.
