    I started using Norton personal firewall like a week ago and ever since ive been gettin alerts of an attack from my own ip with the "MSSQL_Null_Packet_DoS" attack. sometimes it says its from PowerSys, which is my host name. does anyone know whats going on?

    ok i checked up on it, and it is actually my computer sending these stuff out. the sasser fixer program didnt find anything. In all of the reports it is my computer ( PowerSys(*my ip*)) sending the packets out. also i looked up MSSQL_Null_Packet_DoS and they said it's norton's "i dont know what im blocking" thingy. i figured out it is using port 6881 and the attack port(the port my computer is attacking) is 1433(ms-sql-s).

    ok i did that; the hosts file is empty(no entries). I read the description of the Sasser worm and the problem i have fits the description.
