Ubuntu doesn't have a firewall installed... So I had to install one... I dlded firestarter and started running it...
Then I saw this on the blocked connections event log:

don't worry if it is blocked, then they saw nothing and could do nothing. I get those messages on my router pretty much every day. What you have to worry about is if someone managed to get through and in that case, it wouldn't show up in the logs....
These are just some random sites trying to see if they can get through and do some mischief, nothing major to worry about.
If your ip address is the 129.xxxxx then the 2nd one just shows you tried to connect to some service and the firewall blocked it.
last I checked, techie seemed to like the latest Ubuntu (sort of)....Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Of course, opinions differ and while techiemoe might not like Ubuntu some other user might [I am still ambivalent...]
I read the manual for firestarter and understood it at last. Now, my problem is that I am not seeing any events of attempting to connect to my box and that sort of freak me...
How can I know if my computer has been attacked and compromised? How do I know that someone changed configuration files and what not?

If you setup firestarter to ignore or not report packets or something like that, then you won't see the messages.
As for seeing if someone got through, take a look at SNORT, it is an intrusion detection system which is what you might be looking for to complement your firewall.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
