Same thing for Telenet Belgium. They 've mailed around some instructions 
and if they don't act properly, their accounts are cancelled. Gotta love it 
;) They weren't supposed to have servers running anyway.

What's very weird is that Telenet Customers have all ports < 1024 locked 
down (blocked at the routers) for access outside of the Telenet network. 
Machines on the Telenet network can contact each other without problems on 
that port. Now how did Code Red (1/2/II) break out in that network. Good 
question, isn't it? It can't have gotten port 80 of a customer...
