    Attempted backdoor/subseven attacks!

    Hi guys

    I just got around to installing a new Norton Personal Firewall on my laptop two days ago, and just last night i had 10 attempted attacks from two people using the backdoor.subseven trojan!
    What i am concerned about is, if these attacks occured just one day after installation of the firewall, then there is a good chance that someone has attempted intrusion with this trojan prior to the firewall installation.

    I did a full system scan using Norton AV 2002 which reported the system was clean. Could this trojan be lurking, being undetected by the AV s/w?

    I have emailed the webmaster of each ip's ISP but have had no response as of yet!

    Help appreciated!

    Don't worry about it. This just means that Norton is doing it's job. My network gets sub7 scans on a regular basis. As long as you don't have or are infected with the server. You have nothing to worry about from simple scans.
