    My firewall pops up a message several times a day, sometimes more saying it's blocked a "newtear" attack. I also occasionally get a "fragment" attack. Anyone know what these are, and if I should worry about them, since my firewall is blocking them? Also, since I get the IP addy of the person doing it, can or should I report it to their ISP?

    You can report to originator's ISP, not your ISP. (Usually abuse@ or support@ ) Our hands are tied-we can't do anything.

    Off-topic I know, but:
