Suspicious network connections (Gene Spafford)
Department of Computer Science, Purdue University

At a recent intrusion detection workshop, some of the attendees were
lamenting that there was insufficient baseline data to calibrate
some of the systems.

Discussion ensued, and over the next few days, a few of us came up
with (and ranked) the following, with the working title of "The
Grance-Letterman Data Set of the 15 Most Suspicious Network

Without further ado:

15 cut & fork             from
14 chown -R nobody *      from
13 rcp                    from
