Incoming telnet attempts during leafnode/fetch nntp connections

During leafnode's "fetch" nntp connections there have been attempts
(unsuccessful) to telnet into my machine.  My machine dials in to an
isp using "pppd" (dynamic address allocation) and "ip-up":  "runq",
"getpop3", "fetch" and disconnects.  Sometimes "fetch" stays connected
for as much as 1 hour and more.

Newserver is, "nntp.uunet.ca"; I am connecting using
"news.klis.com".  "/etc/hosts.deny" is "ALL: PARANOID"; "/etc/hosts.allow"
is null.

The latest attempt was logged as from "1Cust43.tnt2.tco2.da.uu.net".  A
part of another machine name was "alvirus".

I don't know if I should pay any attention to this.
