    Maybe packet was constructed with your PC's IP as source address..

    src and dst are the same (your PC' IP). Routers on Internet ignore the src ddress
    cause routers route based on dst address. When your PC receives the connetion
    it tries to respond, but it does so to itself and probably thats the way the trojan is
    designed to initiate on victims PC..(however luckily Nortan notified you in advance)

    I dont know ,,just a guess?????

    If any of you guys are using cable modem and want to eliminate possibility that someone may have your IP and is doing "maybe" what I sugested earlier, change your NIC card (if possible) and this will force your ISP to change your dynamic IP address...

    Wait then and see if it happens again..If it does, then what I suggested is not what's happening, if it doesn't ???? (lets cross that bridge when we get to it..lol)

    There is a possiblity that it was just a "false positive" your firewall picked up from your outbound traffic. Those can be fairly common.

    Hmmm,,,yea,,I see what you're saying

    Sometimes you can call your ISP though and request they release your
    IP and assign a new one,Tell them that your being hit with spoofed address..

    They will usually fullfill your request depending on how convincing you are..

    Changing your NIC won't always force an IP change. Certain cable ISPs do assign your IP address based on the MAC address of your NIC, however not all do this. Hell with some ISPs you can't even change your NIC unless you call them and ask them to update their listing for you.


    As for the calling the ISP, he's on DSL which is usually dynamic. All he'd have to do to change his IP is reconnect his router.
