For the benefit of people reading the archives in search of clue: There's
a smiley on that, because Peter knows full well that the single biggest
security problem on the Internet is boxes that are running one application,
or end-user boxes, that aren't run in a secure manner because there's nothing
of interest on the box.

If the box has an IP address, and an Internet connection, it's *always* of
interest, if only as a zombie or a steppingstone box to launder a connection.
