Security Log
The firewall will log security-related events such as denied incoming service requests, hacker
probes, and administrator logins. If you enabled content filtering in the Block Sites menu, the Logs
page shows you when someone on your network tried to access a blocked site. If you enabled
e-mail notification, you'll receive these logs in an e-mail message. If you don't have e-mail
notification enabled, you can view the logs here. An example is shown below:
