Excerpt from article:

Security researchers believe they have identified a new breed of Trojan
horse that is infecting machines on the Internet, possibly in preparation
for a larger coordinated attack. 

The program scans random IP addresses and sends a probe in the form of a TCP
SYN request with a window size that is always 55808.

Interesting reading.  Deb
