    Leave the shields down, get a bunch of virus files. Rename your computer:
    DOD Advanced Research Projects.

    Put the virus files in a shared directory and rename the files to stuff like:
    -Space Laser Project
    -Bio/Chem Agents
    -Stealth Analysis Tools

    ;)

    Asia sucks that way. Most of the computers in the big internet cafes here in Korea run Win98, and I've noticed that they all contain plenty of virii and spyware at most places. Probably not much different in China.

    Yeah I would say its a safe bet but nothing new at all. Same way here in the US w/ comcast and other ISP with tons of infected hosts that nobody does anything about :D

    They are just port scans ... nothing to be concerned of. Everyone gets them.
