Lately, I'm getting a consistant attack from a and

There are NO information found on google other then "you can ignore it if it's success repelled." I personally do not see this as a legitimate answer.

The messenger.exploit, I believe is an attack on the window message. But I've uninstalled it on this computer... so, would MSN messenger be the culprit? Of course, I was using msn last week and it wasn't happening then. I've already logged down 7 different ip address and today, there were already 3 different attacks and ALL IP address started with 65.x.x.x ALL 7 addresses were at 100% loss in traceroute after the 15th hop or so but it traces back to the states... 2 from VA, 1 from CO, 1 from CT, 1 surprisingly from Bell in Toronto and 2 untraceable. Should I be concerned at all? Sure, the attacks were successfully repelled but that's not very comforting.

The mssql.worm.helkern was traced to China... but it is the same as the messenger... not much info on google and it was successfully repelled...

If anyone has ANY idea what this is and stopping it, I'd like to know. Thanks!
