    Well, it would help if you told us exactly what program on your system blocked it.

    Having said that I don't think that you have anything to worry about as the intrusion was blocked.

    As the intrusion was blocked, there should not have been any data removed from or added to your computer.

    Forget about the IP address, it is meaningless.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    and also turn the computer off.
    If I've abused a stack overflow in an application then eveything worth looking into would be in memory.

    Without a more detailed description of your symptoms,
    it would be pointless to speculate.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    I'm making an assumption that you are a victim of chance. I agree with nihil's post. Your firewall seems to have blocked the attempt. Anyway, what sort of information does your pc contain? I don't think any cracker would be bothered about the contents of your box unless you belong to the military or some big corporation. I'd really be more concerned about any malicious programs/rootkits which he might have installed in your box. And how about patching the flaw which might have enabled him to gain access to your box in the first place ???
