Achtung! Snort Cyberkit alert!!!
I noticed my G4 iMac running a little slow the other day - plus expolrer and safari were both acting odd - not loading 40% of sites. This could be a fault with my ISP of course but I started checking about.
"I'm now running Snort/HenWen/Letterstick and keep getting this:
A new alert has been issued...
The alert contents: "ICMP PING Cyberkit 2.2 Windows"
The alert was triggered by an ICMP packet
I'm getting hit by this every 5 seconds - non-stop.
Any clues anyone?

I'm not quite sure what that is, you should use a utility to get more info Who's There is compatible with most firewall log formats, works great. I'm having a similar problem with a particular trojan horse trying to access my machine, connections from around the world... weird. My cable modem never stops blinking, there's always someone trying to access something on my machine.

Tried looking at opendoor.com for 'who's there.' I'm not getting into 40% of sites at the moment (which I suspect has something to do with the continued pinging) and keep getting the message box:
"Could not open the page
Could not open the page "http://
www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/5321" because the
network connection was reset. This sometimes
occurs when the server is busy."
I have a cable connection as well but NTL say the network is ok at the moment.
(note- the above www.macupdate... is an example url)
For anybody that can help with the cyberkit 2.2 windows pinging I've got the following explanation - which means little to me

Rower-CPU - I believe you are correct.
Just called NTL and the chap on the line admitted that there is either a new virus or the old ones (msblast et al) were still causing havoc.
I've changed my proxy settings so I'm sitting on a different server in the country - this is much better for the above browser problems... still getting pinged - most probably by infected ms machines.
My firewall's up in anycase...
