Looking at my own log I have had 295 attempted hacks today already. Most are
port scans but there are quite a few RPC DCOM attacks too.

The worst period seems to be overnight with a lot of attacks coming from
Taiwan. At the moment the attacks are coming from Austria

Interstingly, I have been running a firewall log on my hardware firewall
over the last 24 hours, with it set to email me the log every hour.  It
reports
that an external site (not the same one each time) tries to access my PC on
average about every 30 seconds all through the night!! In spite of this
barrage, I have almost no viral or bot problems - just the odd spyware
thingy gets through if I access an infected site, which is either
detected by AVG or Spybot.  Several people have told me that the only really
secure firewall is a hardware one, and i'm beginning to believe them!
