    Through various methods people can get your IP address relatively easy. Port 80 is commonly checked due to the fact that some viruses and other services such as HTTP hosting run on this port. If an attacker finds that you have port 80 open they can then check for vulnerabilities that, if present, would allow the attacker to gain information and even access to your machine.

    thank you so much. does the 0.000.00Ip address mean that they have a firewall? do you think i am being protected? how can i tell? i believe someone i know is trying to access websites i go to. the 0.000 addresses and times coincide with this person's personal schedule. thanks for any info.
