Seems the hackers are riding the update and trying to pry their way into my systems.

Trying to open a port 6881 through various non-repeating IP addresses.  McAfee is shutting them down.

Port 6881 is typically used for Peer-2-Peer file downloads, which is commonly used by game launchers to speed up file downloads. You can disable the use of it in your Wargaming center settings but it is typically faster than the traditional single source download method and updates will take significantly longer.

These are the only instances of this -- during updates.  Also  looks like whenever I start up the game as well.

And why a different IP every time ?????  This is not Standard Business Practice.

And so these are BLOCKED..  And the game loads/Updates are done anyway.

This is simply wrong.

Blame your Virus protection company.

According to the hacker community, your a low priority target... No need to be paranoid.

It IS disabled...   Again, this makes these attempts highly suspicious.

For every one person on the Internet trying to help me, there are hundreds running autonomous programs trying to hack me.  That's reality.

They do this behind firewalls without consequences, routing data through 4-5 countries to mask their actual location.  They ARE out there.  It's not paranoia.

I don't know why I do these things....   When I was disabling all this stuff from earlier lockups last month - I also changed this too.  I guess the hackers have a copy of the game too.  

I can't remember...  was it supposed to be 6881?

In the Update window click on No Uploading.  This keeps your machine from advertising and supplying updates to other computers.
