    Greetings Mac Rumors! I have a quick question for those that are much more knowledgeable than I ! :D

    Last night I was running my usual infection scan via ClamXav. Upon completion of the scan, my ClamXav Update Log opened and this is what appeared:

    (note: the same error was being made as long as I had the update log window open)


    Should I be concerned? Or is this a normal connection attempt between 2 IP's?

    If anyone knows what this message means, a brief explanation and/or solution would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Thank you for your time!

    It's normal. It just means an IP is sending data to a port on your computer that isn't listening. Since those are private IP addresses it's coming from whatever machine has IP address .
