Intrusion Attacks

I have had 297 intrusion attempts from 2/10/10 to today (3-5-10) luckily I have Norton 360 which blocks the intrusions, but why am I being targeted, why so many attacks and how can I prevent these intrusion attacks?

Hi there, it normal. When any PC in your LAN tries to search for another PCs, Norton thinks that it could be dangerous hence it blocks it and names it as intrusion.

This is most likely the case. Most people aren't "targeted" by anything more than the IP address that they happen to be part of. Most script kiddies and the like wouldn't even know what to do with the box if they managed to compromise it. They just rely on the scripts to do the work and they simply set them off.

Dinesh-I'm on a wireless network.
Dwarf- That is what I got as the origin of the attack.
brady- There have been a lot of attacks coming from that IP address
pparks1- Thanks for the information

Should I worry that they may actually compromise my system?

The IP certainly points back to them, however they will be the unfortunate innocent party. Either one or more of their systems has been compromised and is behaving as a bot, or the attack is coming from elsewhere and the IP has been spoofed to make it look as though it was coming from them. Either way, your system blocked it, which is a good thing.
