New SubSeven outbreak?

All,

I have seen 6 portscans looking for SubSeven on a /24 in the past 24 hours. It'd been a while since I had seen *any*, now I'm seeing all these. Is this a new outbreak/vulnerability, or have I just been lucky? Has anybody else seen an increase in scans on tcp port 27374?

I scanned through BugTraq and didn't see any mention of anything there.

There are a number of IRC controlled bots that will allow
scanning of subnets for Sub7. So you will see occasional
flameups of Sub7 scans as they happen to focus on your
network. Try to connect to some of the cable modem in 24/8
and you will see more of that.

I should still have a little perl honeypot around that you can use
to find out what they try to install on sub7 infected machines.

Thanks for the pointer. I looked on www.sans.org for it, but couldn't find it, but I found one on another site called "leaves" that seems to do what I need. It's going to be amusing to see IRC bots try to upload windows EXE files to a NetBSD machine and try to run them.
