In the 4 years that TrapperJohn has been running, I have never run out of disk space due to a worm propagation, or someone generally trying to haxor the box. Well, a few days ago over 30GBs of logs were written to disk. No I did not stutter that was 3-0-G-B of logs, both raw and PCAP combined. That particular host is offline for now, while 
I write a few processes to prevent this from happening again and offload the data.

The influx of traffic appeared to be caused by the Microsoft Data Services vulnerabilities that were released last month.
