    port scanning isn't really alarming.
    it's a passive attack, which just checks what you have allow at you're port.
    mostly hackers scannes completly Ipranges.

        It means they are scanning your ip address fro open ports to hack you and steal al you info.




















        Only joking. If your firewall is blocking them then investigate and don't fret. I get scanned each and every time i visit this one website and its harmless.

          Sorry wullieb1,but I did not understand what you meant.
          I resolve IP adresses which i scanned and found that they are from webhosting which I visit them.
          I do not know how is it possible when I visit a website and that hosting which website is hosted on that scan my ports.
