I constantly am red-flaged by PG about getting a TCP attack from

IP: 64.34.180.144

Name: Serverbeach Emule Servers|p2p fake files

I do not download files from emule. Nor do I download illegal files. I did download Project Reality from official torrent and some other files that are 100% legal..

I have noticed this attack is constantly happening. What the heck??

How can I get it to stop?

Thats more then likely related to the system in use to deter illegal files from being traded on there servers , something im sure the RIAA forced upon them to keep there servers "legit". Does it only happen when your torrent program is running or all the time ?

{Also , thats Peer Guardian working.

New releases of peer-to-peer networks have attempted to resist spoofing by including IP blocking, and there are also third party products such as a program called PeerGuardian or Peer Guardian which were developed to block IP addresses of those seeking to spoof or otherwise attack the p2p networks. It therefore renders the process of sending messages or false files to the p2p networks largely ineffective.

Its because peer guardian is trying to block that ip and in return the ip is prodding your machine because its trying to deter illegal files from being shared. I bet if you reset your modem and allow your ip to change it will stop.

That's exactly what I did.. But meh.. It seemed to stop now.. I get the occasional University of something when downloading just about anything via Torrent..

I'm going to move completely onto IRC. Hopefully not everything there is illegal..
