 alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET 8080 (msg:"SCAN Proxy
 attempt";flags:S; classt$$lasstype:attempted-recon; sid:620; rev:1;)

 Getting lots of these, it looks like this rule is specific for port 8080
 requests, which is a common proxy port. Anything else ? Can't find anything
 at whitehat.com on this rule; it is part of the standard snort distro.

 So they scanned port 8080, is that all ?
