In Silicon Valley, ATT@HOME cable poke NNTP port from 2 servers
Their hostname was like authorized-scan.athome.net or something.
(I got linuxconf, http, ftp, sunrpc port scanned but these seems to
be from script kiddie.)
I have closed most server port (1-1023) by ipchains by modifying
ipmasq scripts. (It's on my web page as tar.gz)
I think for home machines, firewall by ipchains are good enough and
quite effective both for ISP relation and script kiddie protection.
