Has anyone else been seeing a dramatic increase in /scripts/.. NT worm
probes this morning?  We're seeing about 8000/second, starting around 9:15
Eastern time, to and from a wide variety of addresses.

affirmative.  i just looked at my logs, and it looks like
each probe tries a bunch of things.  i haven't seen much
on the lists, but i'm looking right now.

i'm pretty sure that the worm's attack phase starts on the 20th (which
of course, depends upon a correctly set system clock) and also that
attempting to execute something like /scripts/root.ext/c++ something
is involved.

i think that cert's website would be a good place to look.  i'm *not*
a security/virus chick, but i did host a talk by marty linder of cert
where he discected code red's activity and presented a summary.

cert is of course, http://www.cert.org.
