Not sure if I'm posting this question in the right spot or not, but I did a manual scan of my computer today using McAfee. When completed I looked at the log viewer at "inbound events." It said that my computer was pinged and it listed an IP address. I clicked on the trace feature and it came from San Diego. Why would my computer be pinged? What is the purpose of pinging?? And is there is anyway to find out who is pinging me??

Re: McAfee Scan Log

a "ping" is a simple command that can be used to determine of a particular IP address (or computer) is online or not. The ping itself is not harmful in any way, but if a hacker was targeting you, the ping would tell them if your computer was online or not.

Most likely it was some script-kiddy pinging the entire internet - i would not be concerned about it.
