     Hmmm...doesn't look like the same thing to me.  What I saw were several
hits per second, sometimes up to 10 or 20 per second, on all sorts of port
numbers and coming from IP addresses all over the place.  There is no malware
running on my FreeBSD system (unless, of course, someone is afflicted with
religious problems over that:-), so this system would not have registered
itself at either of the sites mentioned in the latter article.
