TCP attacks

Hello,

I have been warned by ESET that I have been TCP-attacked multiple times in a minute. I was given IP's that have been abusing me and wrote them down on a .txt file just in case I will need them. Not sure if that is related but my network connection has been going wild just an hour before TCP attacks started. Any suggestions what should I do? Anything I can do with the IP's I wrote down to stop TCP attacks?

I live alone so I decided I will need no router, so I do not have it. It is only 1 "internet wire" plugged to my computer, so it must be attacks from outside, not other devices connected to my network.

By the way, there is one very odd thing. I was fast enough to write down 4 IP's I was told attacking me and two of them are almost identical, xxx.xx.xxx.xx4 and xxx.xx.xxx.xx1.

If you have the IP addresses you can look them up at http://www.whatsmyip.org/ip-geo-location/

Also Domain Tools may be able to provide some additional information.http://research.domaintools.com/

Only enter the first 4 sets of numbers (i.e.   222.186.138. 64).

I do not have an exact screenshot of it but it said something like this: "A computer (IP) on the network is sending malicious traffic, it might be an attempt to attack you". Checking the IP addresses on hxxp://www.whatsmyip.org/ip-geo-location/  will take the map to the ocean of north-west Africa.

Refer to this Eset Knowledge Base article: https://support.eset.com/kb2939/ .

As noted in the below excerpt if the IP address/addresses fall in one of the ranges shown, you're going to have to exclude it from IDS detection:

Quote

Examples of internal IP address ranges known to be safe (where "x" is 0-255):

  • 172.16.x.x - 172.31.x.x
  • 192.168.x.x
  • 10.x.x.x
