I haven't done a long-term look at RCP and netbios traffic on the

does anyone have baseline information on the amount of RCP and 
netbios packets were on the web before blaster was propagated? 
Alternatively, has anyone worked out the % of blaster scan as 
opposed to "normal" background RCP and netbios traffic?

Negative, but the normal background noise of netbios+friends 
(including 445) is constant & at a high enough rate that on some 
residential broadband networks, a pause/break in the activity 
in one's filter log files is the most reliable way to detect 
network outages.
