- Look at the TTL jump on the 194... host! I doubt it's just due to traffic
- Interesting ID on 216... host
- Interesting TCP Win on all of them - why the variation on 194... windows?
- Odd that the ID changed by just 463 in a week on 194...
- No IP options set on any of these

The packets look manufactured. Maybe spoofed, maybe not - your thoughts?

>Interesting so visit this site to be probed for trinoo?
>Got a link?

On second look, the site I thought was the trigger (www.umpires.com) doesn't
fit because the web visits occurred a little after the probes (but were
user-initiated). Still - either I'm tripping a trigger or my host made
someone's probe list months ago. It's the only host being probed.

I thought maybe the probing address was being spoofed because of the TTL
change, until I looked at one of the apparent probers. Check out the headers
of the home page for the default web on

The redirect goes to more dynamic HordeSession pages that all either
redirect again or load other dynamic session pages through framesets. I have
not taken the cookie, but I've followed the redirects through several more
dynamic pages and framesets until they begin looping back on themselves. I
haven't figured out how to learn anything useful from Horde pages in a
web-safe browser. Any tips?

Clueless as usual
