We had a hacker trying to get in as user 'probe' for a while. Strangly
enough it was right after my first couple of posts to this mailing list.
Usually that's a name used for replication but I did some packet sniffs and
tracked it to an IP address of another machine that wasn't ours.
Be very careful when you see login attempts you can't account for. Check the
error log, look at everything.
