This is a partial result of a 'whois' lookup on an ip in my firewall logs. The source port was 62026 and 62710. Destination port was 23114. Interesting.

inetnum: 85.37.190.0 - 85.37.190.255
netname: ENTE-MILITARE-ALLEATO-USANATO-US-NAVY-NAPOLI

Are you kidding me? A joint US/NATO network in Italy?

P2P makes my security gland go bonkers. Never, ever, utilize P2P, Kazaa, bittorrent, or any other 'sharing' or peer to peer utility.

Ahh, you don't know what you're missing. The PBS documentaries you can download

That's probably true...but I just can't do it. I work in the IT field and spend hours cleaning infections and viruses from pcs. My personal network is far too important to take chances with....However, if I were visiting and using your pc...

Oh, that's understandable. Every month I will spend a couple of hours cleaning my sister's PC of infections from virii and spyware. Its not much fun, but if I don't do it then she'll start messing with my PC instead


Can't you use an isolated PC behind a personal firewall? You know, just connected the WAN, but not necessarily the LAN?

what the heck does the OP's post have to do with p2p programs.. he noticed a wierd whois on an ip... why don't u people read before replying?

And you can quite safely use a p2p program if you know hpw to et up a firewall and don't accept incoming connections on the p2p prog..

Usually, with a good firewall setup, all the virii that do come in are the result of you clicking something that you didn't carefully examine first..

Thanks, but in reference to the original post...why do you suppose I have an ip from a NATO network scanning my network on unassigned ports?

And cleaning viruses and malware from 'one' pc, is a completely different animal from being responsible for 500 pcs. You tend to develop a different mindset.

Read the link I provided, and you'll have answered your own questions.

I dont know. I was guessing that you were using peer guardian, and/or P2P's like the article I linked describes. There are Very limited references to that organization, and I posted one of the few.

I do note that more detailed IP info suggests a possible co-location of Alabama.
