We have three boxes in the student residences that are attempting to 
resolve using those addresses.  I don't think there's a new infection 
vector.  I think these are boxes that went to the Fortunecity site before 
it was taken down and so got infected.

They can't be resolving hosts now, so it's amazing to me that they haven't 
complained about it, but there you go.  Some students can go for months 
without reporting a problem.  ???
