Yes we are experiencing a rather high influx of UDP 1026 activity too.
Question to the masses:  What other ports will the spammers use to ingest
windows messenger pop ups?  Also.. we run Cisco devices exclusively and I am
wondering if there is a way to automatically add IP ranges or blocks to the
ACL list.  Would NBAR be useful in this?



There is a pronounced increase in port 1026 traffic.
It is expected that popup spammers moved to this port
to bypass port 135 blocks.
