Garrett Knights warned me of this, but it’s still bad to see it first hand. Apparently, the set of IP addresses Telus assigns to its’ ADSL subscribers is well-known. How can I tell? I’ve been probed over 7 times in last two hours. My last ISP was not well-known so their IP addresses were not as public. It was so safe, I uninstalled my firewall because I didn’t need it.

Now, I’m getting probes from France all to the way to Korea. They’re testing my ports, looking for weaknesses. I’m not sure what they could do.

I’m going to leave ZoneAlarm running for a while to see what it can find.
