I have heard of this happening before, although a few years ago, and I cannot recall a general consensus that was ever reached. My best guess is that it has something to do with torrents, but that is an educated shot in the dark. But your experience isn't an isolated incident, so I wouldn't worry about it too much, but it may take some digging around on technical forums to get any type of solid answer.

Hmmmm.. interesting. Sounds like ARAMCO gave you a good port scanning lol... very invasive!

You would have this happen from .. for example... your bank. As a security measure.. many banking websites will scan your ports to ensure THEY are safe from YOUR connection.. and not to threaten your personal data.

When I used to work for Jagex we had alot of questions from users regarding port scanning... which i wont bother to go into.

To be scanned though without accessing the site is a little odd .. sounds very random.

My first question would be "have you ever visited their website before?"

Peace

It didnt look like this by any chance did it?

Port 6886 is used by some torrent programs.. it looks like your sharing porn with the Saudi's! hehe

Haha no the Saudi's wouldn't like my porn
Nah I was downloading a documentary. and no I've never been to their site, that's why i found it a little odd that an oil company would show up on my peer blocker.

Perhaps some bored guy sitting in an office was doing the same as I? lol
