Gotcha. I was concerned about that too and at first didn't have those
cause a block via Snortsam, but then I just took a stab at it. It seems
that a lot of this is coming from the same IP addresses, which doesn't
look spoofed to me (at least not randomly spoofed, heh). However, if
have also seen ICMP unreachable packets coming in on client networks
that where in response to claimed outbound UDP 1026 packets. Confident
knowing the client isn't infected, we set up a trap and indeed it
appears that no outbound packet was sent, but an ICMP Unreachable from
somewhere came in claiming that it was set from that address. So, some
of that traffic does appear to be spoofed.

I haven't broken that down based on actual content of the pop-up. It is
plausible that certain pop-ups are spoofed while others are sent from
infected machines retaining their correct address.

Sounds like a fun project for someone interested... to map which pop-up
(based on content) is spoofed, and which is not.
