Lots of SQL Slammers, ... as well...


The idiots who don't know how to configure/secure/patch/monitor a service
are going to ultimately spoil it for others on those ISPs who are
responsible and actually frequenly provide a service to their communities
identifying threats.  I also wonder how many folks get nailed as running
exploitable systems when they have honeypots set up which, naturally, do
look like such.

Very normal for RR

Their assertion:  "We reserve the absolute right to scan the origin of any
sent to the rr servers"

"If you object to this and wish to end the scanning, then do not send mail
the rr. servers."

Now if they would give that much attention to the multiple open relays on
system that is spewing spam in unprecedented quantities.
