    A/O hacking?

    Kinda weird, but my firewall stopped an echo request from antionline's router...

    why would A/O want to ping me???

    maybe just to see if the host is really alive is your firewall on stealth mode? just a sugestion maybe some 1 else will have the true meaning it wouldnt be anything to worry about though

    Have you been using the IRC Feature? Only thing I can think of at this point that may cause that to come up in the log. I've noticed the same thing in my logs as well, although it always corresponds to when I've been on IRC.
    If there is more to it than that, I'd certainly be happy to know, although I'm not too concerned at present time.

    Regards.

    No IRC - ive even disabled messanger on XP. I NEVER use chat...

    Im not too worried about it, the log just piqued my curiosity. Good ideas so far tho...

    If you look carefully, you'll see that it is not actually a ping. It's a type 9 ICMP packet, which is a "Router Advertisement" of some sort. Perhaps the router hiccupped when you tried to access a page and that was the error message sent by the router. In any case, I don't think it's anything to worry about.
