A surge in scans of TCP port 6101, which is associated with Veritas Backup Exec, was first detected by Symantec's DeepSight network earlier this week. By Wednesday, the security company had finished its analysis. Symantec warns of bot sniffing for Veritas vulnerability - Security - www.itnews.com.au
