New Trojan or paranoia in action?

Story’s at http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,3959,1126751,00.asp. Here’s the deal: they say a compromised system listens for packets of size 55,808. Supposedly there’s another system (systems?) out there that are sending TCP SYN packets to random IP addresses at a speed that will allow them to hit 90% of the Internet’s addresses in 24 hours (!! — that’s gotta be FAST! — there’re a LOT of addresses out there). They don’t know what the compromised systems will do or what kind of information they’ll leak so they can’t say what’s up with this new trojan/virus. You gotta admit, though, this is a weird one!
