Spammers -- fast and furious

Incoming: 190 Successful: ZERO Unique IP addresses: 103 These are all coming from Zombie systems -- people with always-on connections to ISPs like Comcast and Cox. A very few of them are from school systems. If you leave your computer running all the time, you need to get a good hardware firewall. I like the Linksys WRT-54G - you can disable the WiFi if you want to and it still is an awesome firewall for under $60. Stay on top of the updates from Microsoft too -- a lot of new stuff coming out.
