Truth is the cry of all, but the game of fewGeorge Berkeley

Is it mere coincidence that the day Troy opened nationwide in the UK, I start to receive regular attacks of Sokets de Trois v1. Trojan horse on Port 5000 and 5001? Perhaps some bored youth's prank or subterfuge from Symantec's own ranks - yes my current Achilles (name chosen with intent, though not bitter!?) is Norton IS. Ok the software appears to be doing its job, but how do I stop the constant security alerts from arising every couple of minutes!?
It took me the best part of an hour to track down the answer for my 2002 version, in the process discovering a whole darker realm of security settings hidden away in the Norton control panel. With the security alert for the trojan disabled, I found enabling the View Event Log in the Tray Menu tab of the NIS options beneficial - to keep a less intrusive but watchful eye on the continued attacks from Sokets de Trois.
A week has passed but the attacks still persist, although regularity seems to have diminished. I hope the film lives up to the legend!
