Hey there, Anderson,

Unfortunately, we've been able to confirm the coordination...I've 
already gotten responses back from the administrators with 
confirmation that their machines were compromised. :-(

I tend to agree with Morrow on the possibility that some new type of 
exploit could have been released...but the scanning on port 1025 and 
the coordination "rings a bell" with me but I can't remember the 
details or specifics of the incident...

Must be that I'm getting old and losing my memory...8-\

Thanks for the input.
