We've been secure here since our internet g/w's are all multimaxen.
However, I picked up the droppings of the virus from a less lucky
University.  I've got the *,l1.c, *,sun3.o and *,vax.o files...amusing.
I'm under the assumption that the culprit didn't want source to
his/her work floating around so purposely used precompiled objects.
I spent some time adb'ing the thing, but I assume someone hit worse
has already done that.  Does anyone have additional source to this around?
