    Well, the Chinese IPs you're blocking are probably addresses of institutions whose job it is to find "indecent material" and add it to the huge and growing block list that is "The Great Firewall of China".

    As for the Kuwaiti IPs, they're probably just adware distributors, though they could also be scanning for "indecent material".

    A co-worker found his PC running extremely slow. He looked at his logs and someone had somehow connected to his PC and was basically downloading his hard drive. The IP traced back to china :rofl: ... that's why.

    Get behind a good router if it's bothering you that much.

    When I first ran a router, I thought something was wrong with my zonealarm
    because I stopped getting alerts. :mamoru:

    Even after you close your torrent program, you will still see IPs trying to connect because the tracker hasn't been updated yet. It should stop after a few hours. Doesn't really answer your question about "why" but it will stop with time.
