Hi All,
	We were alerted to a strange phenomena yesterday when our squid proxy
logs filled up the partition.  We found that several machines on campus
were making tens ( and in one case hundreds) of thousands of requests

we have not found anything obviously 'wrong' with with the machines but
have not yet subjected them to a full forensic examination.

Any ideas what is going on?
