I don't realy see any trend in 1080/8080... These are popular ports
to begin with, as proxy servers are popular to hide once identity.

BTW: Its a while now since the PHP vulnerability was released.
Can everyone take a close look at their web logs to look for
suspicious entries? I am just wondering if people are experimenting
with it. 

It is kind of hard automatically detect in a regular web log.
All 'POST' queries to php pages should be suspect. Or 'HEAD'
queries followed by 'POST' queries.

(its one of these things where IDS signatures may not do much
good at this point)
