Odd Firewall Entries

Hi, I am using XP Home Service Pack 3 with McAfee Internet Security.  Okay, I noticed that in my incoming events in the History and Logs of McAfee it said that there were 4 incoming events one of which was done by the same ip address.  However, the odd thing is that these activity or events' times were after I had exited Firefox.  The first ip was and it was accessing TCP Port 1204, the second was accessing TCP Port 1167, and last was accessing TCP Port 1302 with a minute of its first attempt.

The odd thing is that after I started Firefox, I went to only check my Yahoo email, when I did a reverse ip lookup the first two belong to Google I believe.  The odd thing is that if I used the site it says that this domain ( is hosted on this ip address (

What is even odder is that this ip address was trying to access TCP Port 1167, upon googling this port. and pc-library list that this port is used by Trojans.  pc-library list the trojan as Downloader-AAA and listed it as Crazzynet.

Basically, what the heck is going on?  I didn't even go to google and it is possible that this TCP Port 1167 (aka Downloader-AAA) is on or infected my computer?

Re: Odd Firewall Entries

Incoming Events is basically there just to tell you that Firewall is blocking unknowns - they are all failed attempts.  We all see them in that section of SecurityCenter.  Many are legitimate of course but some not and that list is really only there as an FYI.   You have no need to do anything further or worry about them.

It looks scary, but there is no need to worry about those I assure you.

You could try this.Open a Command prompt. Start button,the Run,type CMD.Then when the window opens type in netstat -ano.This will show what connections are established.Make sure you don`t have any browsers open when doing this.Also there is a space between the netstat and -ano
