Your example alert looks like a connection to
pD4B9F42A.dip.t-dialin.net [212.185.244.42] from whatever you local ip
is/was.  Many of the hacked machines I have seen over the last few
years are in the dip.t-dialin.net.  That said, I am sure they are a
ISP with real clients doing purhaps legitimate work.

  In the last four years, every time (a dozen or so) that I've investigated
a co-opting of a server by warez/porn pirates, one of the external addresses
involved has traced back to t-dialin.net .  Complaints to them always
elicited
a canned "The users will be located and warned" response -- I don't bother
any more.
