A new list of IP's that hit the (still secret) counter address is being

You mean this address? :


It's only been in the Symantec description this whole time as:


3 million now.  hehe

Is it just me or is this whole thing getting overblown?

Undoubtably.  There is simply no way that something with such a dumb
vector for spreading is infecting hosts so quickly.

It was at about 600k when I first took a look at the counter, and
bumping up by 5 or 10 in the time it took me to read the number and
hit reload.  Earlier today it was bumping by a few hundred each time,
and it's about the same rate now.  I know that as more hosts get
compromised, it should spread faster, but it really seems more like
some guys with scripts are having a good laugh.

Also, this counter script is pretty common, for those of you playing
around with options.  You can find a list of options and source code
out there if you just look.  If you don't want to contribute to the
count when you poke it, for example, use incr=F.
