I know almost nothing about computers, but I recently noticed several notifications from Kaspersky saying “network attack detected”. There are ten of these notifications in all. Each of these notifications was issued at the exact same minute in time. Under “Name”, each of these notifications says “Scan.Generic.PortScan.TCP”, under “User”, they each say “NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM”, and under “Result”, they each “Not processed”.
In between the ninth and tenth of these notifications, there is a separate notification accompanied by a blue i symbol enclosed within a circle. Under both "Event" and “Result”, this separate notification simply says “Task Started”. It says nothing under name. Like the “network attack detected” notifications, the “Task Started" notification says “NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM” under “User”.
I don’t really know what any of this means. People have told me that someone may have tried to hack me, but I was also told that this could have been a false positive. I was told that if I mentioned the problem here, someone might be able to confirm whether or not it was a false positive. Is that possible?
