I hate to tell you this, but you've offered nothing that indicates they
tried to "break-in" to your computer. Many of us have a number of IP's
that are scanned hourly (or faster) and consider it part of the
background chatter, increases some days, decreases others, but it's
always there.

If you were smart, you would have your computer/network protected by a
border device so that they can't reach your computer. You would also
have a block list setup so that most IP's outside your own country are
blocked from inbound access to your network.
