lol, not at all...sounds to me that its simply just your internet security software asking you to allow access to a certain site, and sometimes, depending on what internet security software you use, it will ask you when you are connecting to various servers, funkypool for instance, and will give you its own recommendations

Ok dont panic.

Have a look at your macafee firewall settings, and look for "Exceptions"

These are programs or ports that are allowed through the firewall.

Just remove ANY you are not 100% sure should be there.

(things like MSN Messenger etc are ok)

The chances of it being a hacker are extremely slim. Unless you're sitting writing this in 10 downing street

Please dont post misleading information on this forum which can damage users systems.

In this case, you will be given the benefit of the doubt as you may have been given this useless information yourself, and reposted it innocently.
