Hi list,

I thought this was a pretty interesting story, and a hint for netgear users 
to make sure they have a nicely working firmware... 
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~plonka/netgear-sntp/

In short: Wisconsin University is being flooded with NTP requests from 
about 700K flawed netgear routers...

The site describes also how they found out, and how they will try to tackle 
it (obviously, no more than 1% of the users will probably upgrade their 
firmware).

Tom
