It's stopping the intrusion attempts, correct?
There is no suggestion, the firewall is doing what it is supposed to do. It is just logging the attempts at penetration.
If it is not stopping the intrusions, you need to change settings in your firewall configuration to disallow the .com that is doing this. (And probably run malware scans.)

Agreed with lbmest.

You can also contact your ISP support and report the attacks - they should be able to discern the IP address range that the intruders are using and take prevention steps.

That is alerting you to incoming attempts and you have scanned your system recently? I love to run malwarebytes anti-malware when something odd is happening and then I feel better when i ignore it.
