Hmm. NTL cable doesn't count as interesting and if were just zombies
(which was my initial view - loads of Christmas present PCs connecting
on the holiday) then other people should be seeing this. People who I
have talked to don't seem to notice anything like the orders of
magnitude jump that I have seen. But then again I expect that someone is
keeping a list of machines that run a given service that then gets
farmed out to the script kiddies. Like any mailing list it is probably
not likely that it is vetted too closely.
Ah well, still no breach yet. A lot of the new addresses seem to be
domestic ISPs in Portugal.
