It depends on the ports they're trying to open on your machine.

As long as you have a firewall, though, you're safe, so don't worry.

Thanks for the speedy reply Tuxedo Jack! According to the Alert Log it states that the pings are of a moderate threat. Moderate threat or not why are they constantly pinging the !&$% out of my pc??

They're pinging your IP, not your PC specifically. The new worms spread by picking random IPs with the first two octets close to or exactly like their IPs, so if you've got a similar IP, you get blasted.

However, as you have a firewall, don't worry about it.

Thanks again for the speedy reply Tuxedo Jack!! I will take your advice and leave it at that. It's a shame that one has to go about securing their pc just short of putting a chastity belt on it!! Will definitely keep the firewall up and running to keep those retards out of my pc!! Thanks again for you words of wisdom!! :thumbsup:
