We're still blocking 135 outside the IDS, and I've given serious 
consideration to adding 445 to that, but haven't done so quite yet.  At 
any rate, my huge jump in 445 scans was on the 12th-14th.  the 12th was 
more than 50 times the day before and the 14th was nearly 40 times the 
day after.

It's much more important to know what you don't know than what you do know!
