Nope there is no firewall between my modem and computer. As far as I know Firestarter is blocking all incomming traffic via IPtables unless I assign an allow policy.
I really don't have a paranoia about being hacked being that I really don't have any personal information being sent or stored. I just was curious to find out just why these scans where occurring and if it was possible to stop it.
For the most part I keep my services closed until a friend requests to use it. and vice-versa.
I do have a wireless card that I was trying to get running properly on the Ubuntu side with injection. I have Backtrack3 installed on a separate partition that works well but was looking to just format the drive for space.
Maybe just go with Backtrack4 since it's Ubuntu based and start over from there. I'm not into breaking into anyone's computers or stealing there bandwidth, except with the permission of friends who live close by.
My friends are a bunch of windows users, who don't have as much interest in pentesting as I do because Linux is too user unfriendly for them, they want everything to be like Metasploit's gui lol.
Thank you for the welcome
