@home started scanning their customers for open NNTP proxies (mostly 
machines running misconfigured WinGate proxies) after they came >< close 
to getting UDP'ed. Their response to Code Red seems to have been 
limited to blocking port 80 to their cable modem customers (running a web 
server on a cable modem is a violation of their AUP, but until now it was 
only enforced in egregious cases).
