    Risky Connections

      Hope someone can shed some light on this issue . The other day when I was connecting to skype a box appeared and said I was trying to attempt a risky connection skype still connected no problem and i just clicked the x off the popup box . When I looked in mcafee it said risky connections attempted 1 risky connections blocked 1. I didnt really think much about it but today I looked in mcafee and to my surprised there was 9 risky connections attempted and 9 blocked I havent had a popup box saying anything to me. I have done a full scan and pc is clean. I havent being going anywhere on the web that I dont normally go on. So i thought ok I will visit everywhere I normally go and see if any more risky attempts but nothing is showing I cant understand and is me me attempting to connect or is it someone trying to connect to my pc? I rang mcafee and they said do a scan and if its clear then its nothing to worry about but this has never happened before.  Should I be worried that someone is trying to hack my pc? Can anyone shed some light on this please for me.


      Thanks in advance
