As we head into School holidays, might be a good idea to check out your DSL router security:

Especially if you are using:

Linksys (x30 models)
Netgear (x10 models)

As well as about 15 other models of cable and DSL modems, as there is a new type of virus that focusses in on attacking your DSL router rather than the PC.

Meaning that the router can then do and control all sorts of nasty things to you.

Some dude was seeing the following, and it is only going to get worse as we go into School holidays:

Might be worth noting that those IPs all seem to be in use by the ISPs themselves (rather than being allocated to DSL/dialup/etc customers).

202.89.36.226 => authent2.tranzpeer.net
119.224.143.10 => Akamai cache (that I'm currently downloading from)

However, I do find this one rather amusing:
202.89.36.226 (and, yes, it does seem to have the correct RDNS entry.)
