Windows 7: TCP Port Scans

TCP Port Scans

My router has blocked an unusually high number of TCP port scans this week, 32 of them. All originated from two addresses in China. This is unusual for me. Is it, in fact, unusual, or is it par for course?

Oh the Chinese...Scan your computer with Malwarebytes'. If you don't find anything, I think it's safe to assume it's a random occurrence.

Thanks, and I have done that. I was just kind of concerned with the number of probes.
