As a new user I was amazed to see the shear number of inbound attempts that are being blocked.I looked up some of the IP addresses on Whois and I find most of them come from foreign Internet registration organizations
such as RIPE or Asia - Pacific.
That's all the info I can get and it doesn't tell me anything.
I'm making an assumption that it is members of these groups that are actually doing the query but I have no way of knowing who they are or whether they are benign or malicious.
I'm going on the malicious assumption.
I'm going to turn off the notification popup so I'd like to know if I am right in assuming that if ZoneAlarms blocks inbound attempts they really do need to be blocked.
Is there any way of telling where or who these attempts are actually coming from?
