We were evaluating an Intrusion Protection Device last month. One thing we
did see was a large SQL login attack every Tuesday during the month on
December at approx. 12 CST for about 10 minutes. I am interested if anyone
else saw a like attack.

This very well could have been a hacker laying the ground work for the
recent attack.

Subject: [unisog] earlier report of SQL slapper worm

	Am I misremembering (I can't now find the email in previous unisog
saved mail but I may have deleted it) or did someone on here report a
outbreak of the SQL slapper worm a few months ago? I remember scanning argus
logs looking for UDP port 1434 after seeing a report (I think here) and not 
finding anything then giving up after a week or so. There was also a comment

that it scanned addresses in the multicast range (which the SQL slapper did 
here on Friday night). If so I expect whoever is searching for the source
be interested in the earlier report and anything that was discovered about a
possible source ...
