My ISP (Blueyonder broadband, UK) has recently installed a scanner.
ZoneAlarm is picking up a series of hits from it every 45mins probing ports
25, 119, 1080 and 6588 (6 times each).
I have spoken to a 'techie' at the ISP and they claim they are trying to
trap users infected with various trojans and mass-mailers.
