Hi,

Year it was a TCP connection and the port from memory was fairly high
somewhere around 1300 or there bouts!
hope that helps, sorry i dont have, oh hang on, yes i do
its port 80 all of them where port 80 which is a web site aye
but when i enters the ip numbers it comes up un known?

--> probably this is a virus/trojan etc. which tried to connect to a
website which has been shut-down because it provides virus updates,
trojan commands, or something like this.

Doesn't sound too good anyways...

No i didnt think it sounded to good!
it seems to me that linux has as many security probs
as MS does?.
I think ill dive into linux security over the next few months
and arm myself with as much knowlege as pos.
do you know of any linux dist's that are on the safer side
as far as security goes?
as i am pretty much a newbie (only got into linux the last 2-3 months)
but have learn a heap in that time and am considering doing a
 gentoo install that ive herd can be done using knoppix.
But im rather hooked on SuSE 9.1 and will endevour to learn as
much on security and SuSE as i can, This mail list has been awesome
and i learn alot from peoples problems and answers.
Thanks to everyone who devotes their time here for people like
me that really appreciates and learns a heap.

Yours...Ben
