Get a real firewall.

Nope, a dropped packet on a Sonicwall.

I think it means Affinity has an infected/zombied server. What do you

Yes for sure, format all your servers you are at high risk since you've
tried to access their servers, call them and tell them this serious
problem what your fancy sonicwall told you and you end up as the hero of
the day.


Believe it or not I did (once) get that to happen with a US based server because I found the owner (not IT savy) who leaned on his IT people and made them find the infected server.
