My hormonally driven teenage son opens an e-mail message with "Snow White..." in the subject line using outlook on a win98 box. Message has no visible attachment or message. At the time the message was opened I had installed all the windows updates and was running NAV with updated definitions. I am also running Sygate Personel Firewall.
Now for my question (other than which military school to ship said son off to), The fire wall shows kernel32.dll listening on 3 ports (137, 138 & 139). I don't recall seeing this. Is it normal?
NAV scan has not detected anything. I downloaded the EICAR test string and it detected that, but I am still unconvinced (read paranoid). I run F-prot from a cd and it also did not detect anything, but the firewall shows kernel32.dll trying to connect to the internet.
