    I put together a brief overview of the internet traffic that I saw at my home at http://www.linklogger.com/May2004.htm for May. For example I logged over 150,000 scans, three worm outbreaks (Sasser, Bobax and Korgo) during this period. Given I don't run any services or anything on this account (couple of passive honey pots sometimes), this report could be representative of the average malware traffic on the internet (my ISP doesn't filter ports).

    If you don't have a firewall protecting you, what is protecting you?

    Quite. I'd love to see this kind of reports. Pity this post turns out to be a bit of an ad...
