Not yet.  All the worms I know about scan your address book.  It would
take one that tries to send mail to random IPs for my honeypot to catch

Speaking of which, just as Matt Sargeant predicted, the honeypot isn't
getting hit as much as I thought it would:



PS: Klez and its ilk are properly called worms, not viruses.  Not that
    anyone would fail to understand what you meant if you said virus, I

PPS: The plural of "virus" is "viruses".  "viri" means "men".  "virii"
     doesn't mean anything at all.  There are other latin -us latin
     words which are not pluralized by going to -i (notably, corpus).
