Holy cow! Like 10 over two hours, you say!?! It's more like over two
thousand over the past six hours! Could this be some kind of probe by
that new BugBear virus (http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_99728.htm)?
It's said to traverse network shares...

Yours,

Joeri

YES!

I have also noticed a huge increase. For the past 2 days or so my logs
are
filling. Today alone I have had 60+ attempted connections to
137,udp,from
varying ips. Maybe I will take down the wall and sniff a few of these...

Why the sudden increase?
