Re: Zombie / Botnet?

I'm not able to look into the traffic, but my two thoughts are (1)
McAfee is not perfect and all AV apps miss their share of malware and
(2) get that thing off the network immediately.

Hi,

One of our workstations is broadcasting a huge amount of UDP traffic
(around 5Mbps) and I'm thinking it could be a zombied computer doing
DDOS as directed by its controller.  But the weird thing is - it has
an updated McAfee AV with HIPS ??  Why was this not detected - or
could I be reading this wrong?  Here's a portion of the tcpdump:

Any ideas?
