    S3.AMAZONAWS.COM - DOS Attack?

    ferr3816

      Hello,

           For the last few weeks I've been getting dozens of IP attempts to access my computer.  Fortunately, the Netguard on my McAfee suite is blocking the attempts (deeming them "risky connections"), but obviously I've very concerned.  All of the attempts have been coming from some variation of s3.amazonaws.com.  Research I've done indicates that although the ISP may say amazon.com, these may very well be some sort of DOS attack, virus, malware, etc. 

            I've done numerous scans, whether that is anti-virus, malware, spyware, you name it.  But the IP attempts continue.

       

           Does anyone have any recommendations that I can perform to stop these attempts once and for all?  Here are the IP's in question:

       

      72.21.195.33

      72.21.195.160

      72.21.211.171

      72.21.211.199

      72.21.214.144

      72.21.215.75

      72.21.215.90

      72.21.215.100

      72.21.215.132

      72.21.215.196

      205.251.242.100

      205.251.242.132

      205.251.251.4

      207.171.163.4

      207.171.163.23

      207.171.163.162

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Tony
