I'm not sure if I selected the right forum but since it has to do with my network I guess this would be the place. If not, please, move it to the right one.
Last night while I was sleeping, my speakers were still on and the sound of Kaspersky blocker woke me up(around 4am LT). It wouldn't if it was only one-time sound but the sound was repeating over and over again. I just got out of my bed, turned off the speakers and I continued sleeping.
Then I got out of my bad around 11am and I saw that I was being DoS attacked or at least that's what Kaspesrky Network Blocker was saying. To be exact, more than 500 DoS attacks from 4am to 11am. I traced some of the IP addresses but I don't think they are telling me much since some IP addresses are from USA, others from India, Pakistan, Philippines etc.
The only 'useful' information that I saw was the port through the attacks were coming in. It was the same port on every 'attack' - 16982 . I looked up on Google and I found the following on many websites: TCP 16982 AcidShiver.100.
I was thinking about closing that port but I guess that would be too easy and I don't even know how to close that port and neither does Google.
I must say that this is the FIRST time that I experience something like this and I'm wondering if this is virus-related issue or not. Can I do something about it or not?
Finally, I'm leaving here the screenshot from Kaspersky. (click on the image for bigger size).
Any further and help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
