its spam scans. In windows if you have the messenger protocol running a popup would display with some spam message.

Nothing to worry about in linux, and not much to worry about in windows if you disable the service.

here's a link for more info if you want.

That's some information about the IP addresses that are listed as the "source". Maybe get in touch with the e-mail address mentioned, and tell them that there appears to be some heavy port scanning going on from one of their customers.

Normaly it shouldn't be a problem. If you want to be sure if everything is working, just bootup the live cd and try it out. The only thing you could damage is the Vista installation, but that shouldn't be a problem :P
