W32.Blaster...

575 distinct IP addresses have hit my firewall on TCP port 135 since midnight.

At an average of 4.2 packets per machine (ranging from 1 to 18), that's 2411 distinct packets which can be attributed to W32.Blaster. That's an average of 2 packets per minute.

As I'm sitting here watching the iptables logs, I've noted two or three more IPs just in the time it took me to calculate these numbers.

There's another one...

Aaaand another one...

I pity the poor ISPs who have to put up with this... I would pity the Windows users, but really... they *should* know better. Come on, you guys...take the plunge! Convert! Now is as good a time as any. </linux_bigot> ;)

It basically means that there are a LOT of computers on the Internet that are infected with a worm...and it's trying to spread itself by hacking into other computers.

Fortunately, most firewalls will stop it, and (fortunately for me at least) it can only infect machines running Windows.

And yes, we looooooooove penguins. :-D

I do... I would never use it myself, especially not for a production machine.

But that doesn't change the fact that it's probably the best beginners' distro there is. I certainly wouldn't sit someone new to Linux down in front of a blank machine and hand them a Gentoo cd... even though Gentoo is my favorite distro.
