Re: Fwd: Re: Code Red variants
Odd thing: from a Sprint connected network, he seess the most attempts from Sprint's Class A. On my cable-modem connected box through Cox Internet, I see 248 out of 256 attempts coming from *.cox-internet.com. Does the new variant perhaps try to "stick to it's own domain"? I do see some non-localdomain stuff as well, so it's not 100% definite, and I can't say whether or not the providers are proactively filtering inbound to prevent other providers from getting in.
