pop-2 is either a scan for an obsolete POP server, or a scan to see if
you've got a recent trojan on any of your boxes; can't remember which one/
more details though sorry ;) I think Dermot Hanley might be on the right
If pop2 is coming up, that's a pretty good sign someone's running
something there that shouldn't be running, so I'd talk to the admin.
check the recent bugtraq archives for more details.
