I'm now wondering if we did see a "worm" attempt, what would we do about it?
I do run stats and never see any useful info about worms. I agree that we 
need to know things that are real threats -- and if we can do anything (yes, 
it's what you don't know that can hurt you) --  but these annoying ones that 
just fill up logs are just a waste all around IMHO.
