Dear Msnbot

Dear Msnbot: why do you hammer on port 8080 when there is nothing listening there?

I recently set in place a comprehensive iptables firewall and have started logging dropped packets. I’ve noticed the highest number of dropped packets comes from aka Does it just try port 8080 on every known domain name, “just in case”?

    Hrm, how about rejecting rather than dropping? That’ll tell them.
