Anonymous Coward writes "There is now a site dshield.org which collects firewall log excerpts to summarize and organize them in a database. The point is to single out script kiddies that scan large IP segments. It could all end up saving ISPs a lot of time running after / responding to gazillions of reports from users. Interesting: Right now, IPs used by @Home and RoadRunner to scan their users top the list. The site is only up for a couple of days. but already quite a bid of data has been collected. There is a little perl script that will automatically send Linux kernel log excerpts (ipchains style) to the sytem. ZoneAlarm logs can be processed as well."
