Subject: [Dshield] ping sweep

| Hey all,
| I just started looking at a W2k server for a customer, and when I fired
| up Network Monitor, it seems that the server itself is doing a massive
| ping sweep of the entire 192.168.x.y IP range.  Has anyone seen such
| behavior before, or know what might be the source of this?
| There also seems to be a considerable number of outgoing echoes to
| various asiapac IP addresses.  A quick search by spybot found a few
| minor things, but the ping (echoes) continue.
| Neil
