[Dshield] Bizarre Activity Spurt...

In my case, which was the start of this thread, what was strange was the
unusual burst it started arriving in - 160 or more hits within one minute,
all from the same source port; same IP for 8 hits, then a different IP for 8
more, and so on. Then it stopped for 4 hours and 13 minutes, and then
another 1 minute burst. The content would be the same old spam, however. As
mentioned in a post sent a few minutes ago, it stopped Saturday morning.

I'd not seen that furious an onslaught before, all at one blast. It usually
trickles in steadily throughout the day.

What is strange about this ? All I see is messenger spam, nothing else.
