Hi, all. This is just for my own curiosity (and thank you in advance).
I've noticed that the types of "attacks" in Norton Firewall seem to go in
cycles. For the past month, I'm experiencing a majority of MSSQL Stack
Overflow attacks (sometimes 4+ per day). Before that it was port scans,
before that it was something else.

Do spammers/hackers/viruses usually do things in groups like this? I would
expect things to be more random and not happen so much in groups.
