When talking about security and paranoia, don't fall into the trap of
thinking that there's somebody trying to get YOU.  They want to get ANYBODY.
If there's a person at the ops centre at your ISP who's a bit nosey and
decides to pop a sniffer on the net and just 'browse' for a while, they'll
pick up all sorts of juicy bits from a lot of different companies.

I have a test iSeries that I put on the web every so often, and I routinely
get my first probes within minutes of starting the HTTP server.

The snoopers may not be looking specifically to crack MY company's web site,
but they'll take it if they can get it.
