Norton tells me it caught another trojan attempt originating from According to ARIN this is:

OrgName: RIPE Network Coordination Centre
Address: Singel 258
Address: 1016 AB
City: Amsterdam
Country: NL
ReferralServer: whois://whois.ripe.net:43
NetRange: -
NetName: RIPE-213
NetHandle: NET-213-0-0-0-1

Now it sometimes seems like half the intrusion attempts Norton notices originate with Ripe. So I'm gonna try something new for me, because this is ticking me off. I'm going to set up a firewall rule blocking all traffic from the entire Ripe netrange.

Ripe is not a ISP , so you dont need to block all their ranges , but its your choice.

The RIPE NCC is a Regional Internet Registry (RIR).

This means we allocate address space to ISPs and other organisations.
These organisations are responsible for the activities originating from the address space allocated to them.

Since the RIPE NCC is not the organisation using or responsible for activities originating from the address space,
any concerns or responses should be directed to them and not the RIPE NCC.

This is the ISP that the persons IP originates from. -
netname: FR-QUALIGAZ
descr: 8 Bd Bertier
descr: 75017 Paris
country: FR

this might give you some tips on tracking down other IPs you get:
