Hi All

I have recently changed a new branded computer. My system has a
licensed Windows XP Professional and a Licensed Kaspersky 2008.

The Firewall is set on the training mode and all other settings are as
recommended by Kaspersky.

I have been regularly getting warnings/notifications that an attack on
your computer by "Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern" UDP 1434 has been
blocked. When I trace the IP, most of these originate from China. This
happens especially when I use MSN messenger.

I chat with lot of my suppliers in China and online most of the time.

Is my computer a target for setting up spyware or someone is trying to
access it ? Do I need to take a preventive action for this ?

Please suggest.

Thanks in advance

AK

Yes, everyone is a target at one time or another.

It appears you already have.

Yes, you should configure your Kaspersky software to not harass you --
The stuff to worry about is what your packet filter misses, not what it
blocks.
