I'm wondering if there's something I can do to improve security on my UTM.
I' have been bombarded for years but there has been an uptick recently.
I'm also getting traffic from a research organization in Europe called ReCyber which appears to be a security-centric organization perhaps trying to get a handle on all the hacking going on. I am a home/free user. Would a paid license improve anything appreciably?
I've taken to blocking inbound traffic from all countries including the US, so nothing gets in. My UTM never identifies anything, even if I have a viral infection on my net.
What are other people doing? I appear to be singled out for some reason... I think. I wonder if someone noticed improved security on my side and decided to 'really try' to get in. I'm just guessing.
Oh yes, my laptop was actually hacked on a trip this year and I did have in on my home network, so I imagine the nefarious folks did get traffic from this network identifying it as a target. That would probably be it.
Thanks in advance.

If the UTM is blocking the traffic and dropping it or rejecting it, it's doing its job. I utilize Country Blocking and reject the traffic. Just because you are seeing the attempts in your logs doesn't mean you are being hacked, and a lot of these places are port scanning IPs. You can:
Report the IP.
Use Country Blocking and reject packets in UTM.
If you can, change your ISP IP address.
Request some help from the ISP (although I doubt they do much, this would be the whack a mole methodology for them).
