Morning all,

I blocked a svchost request this morning from a strange dns. (i didn;t recognise)

I then checked the hacker info in Zone alarm & the request looks like it came from Telstraclear.

Is this legit/safe/something?

What port was used? Was is it on the cable modem network? There are lot of normal background noise/activity on a cable modem network - and broadcasts are not uncommon - ARP for example.

I am on the TCL cable network.

I will have to check the port when I get back home.

Thats DNS.

So dont block it or you'll find youve blocked yourself from the net (apart from using IP addresses)
