    i think zonealarm would leave it open as default, its a useful feature for network admins wanting to do tests. I know my school used it alot.

    I'd think any good firewall would block them too...my router has a firewall (and NAT like baragon0) and I'm running ZoneAlarm too because my router's firewall is kinda lame (and to protect outgoing traffic by application, no consumer router does that). I never get them. Plus I disabled the messenger service.

    It's a lot of fun at work though, I bound one of the extra keys on my keyboard (i.e., Home, Search, E-mail, etc.) to do a net send to somebody.

    edit: whatever mod deleted my Googlebot thread could have at least PMed me as to why they felt it should be deleted...

    my guess is they just send them to random netblock IP addy's

    Never gotten one because I'm behind a router.

    I posted a news story on this earlier.

    Thanks, I have that turned off now, I was wondering how they sent those, I did get one of those about 8 hours ago.
