I just checked my email quarantine and tarpit graphs this morning and
there's an interesting correlation: tarpitted traffic here increased
quite a bit almost exactly one hour after the first instances of Novarg
attacks started coming through, and has been steadily high since.

It appears to be primarily 1433/tcp traffic.

Can anyone else confirm this? Anybody think it means anything?

  Failure to plan ahead on someone else's part does not constitute an
  emergency on my part.
