HI guys! IM not really an expert but someone is really trying to hack my computer!!!. I got Norton Antivirus and firewall installed and it blocked an intrusion like 4 times already.When i check my Log viewer it says:

Intursion: INvalid Source IP address
Risk level: low
Source Ip address: DF1T9451( This IP address is invalid
Destination Ip address:
Protocol: IGMP

And the other ones say

Intursion: INvalid Source IP address
Risk level:LOW
Source Ip address: DF1T9451( This Ip address is invalid
Destination Ip address: DF1T9451(
Protocol: TCP

I really don't undestand what it means...if someone could determine and explain who da hell it is ,, i'll appreatiate it very much..

From what you last said it only happens when you start internet explorer, it could be a web downloader,which could hide in the registery until you open IE.Scan your systen with a good virus scanner and spyware/adware cleaner and see if it continues.If so post again and I can give you alot of other options to try.

"Risk level: low"


Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

Is there any way you can find out whether this is someone trying to get in, or something attempting to break out of your system? The latter is what you need worry about because it would mean your machine is infected.

If it's an "unsuccessful" attempt to break in then that is exactly why you have a firewall. Trying to find the source is like getting a dog and barking yourself. Not worth the hassle, especially as the source address appears to have been faked.

I got the same IP address on my pc. I noticed when I plugged in my Logitech USB camera that it would create a new network connection with the IP addess of! Once I restarted the pc it would go away and work fine.

Do you have any USB devices plugged in?
Does it go away when you restart your pc?
Try unplugging everything, restarting and plugging one device in as a time, then checking your Network Connections or run IPCONFIG from the DOS prompt after each one to find out if one of them is the cause.
