I have found this rule to be extremely valuable in terms of finding
infected hosts. Yes, it is difficult to track down all of the cyberkit
alerts, but the trade off is much worse; an infected network. Our network
permformance was severely affected when the Nachi/Welchia worm was
released. The cyberkit rule (in addition to firewall logs) helped us
identify the infected machines so that they could be removed from the
network and cleaned. I don't really want hundreds of thousands of pings
traversing our network looking for machines to compromise.

             I just switched that rule off. I couldn't bear it anymore O:-)
