i just recenlty installed the mcafee firewall. what does it mean when it says “mcafee firewall has intercepted a netwear attack???”

there is a lot of programs out there designed to probe your computer for weaknesses (which there is a lot of if you are using windows), trying to gain access to and use your machine for remailing, platform for hacker attacks etc… your firewall takes care of these (in most cases)…

It probably means it’s working. It just blocked a bad program from getting on your PC.

It’s probably the cops trying to hack in and find incriminating pictures of underage dry-humping victims.

i tend to agree with warhorse. personally i think its the fbi.
