Ward,

I haven't checked lately. But a year or so ago, I saw a figure that stated
that if you bring up a computer on the internet, that is, where it gets
assigned an IP address directly, rather than an unroutable IP address on the
safe side of a firewall (a firewall is typically provided by a DSL or cable
"modem", which is almost certainly what you have at home) that brand new
computer with its brand new IP address starts getting hit by automated
attacks coming from all over the world within seconds.






Our first higher speed (than a modem) connection was ISDN. I do not remember why, but we connected without a router, but sharing the connection over a computer.

The first thing I did was start up BlackICE Defender. And within 1 - 2 seconds of getting the connection, the IP address was being hit MANY times.

And this was back in the early 90s.
