active Nachia infected machines are rather easy to spot. Any network
sniffer will show the ICMP traffic they generate. Even without network
sniffer: Walk to your switch/hub and see which LED blinks the fastest.
Walk to the machine and if there is no other network activity (e.g. big
download), its likely infected.
