I beg to differ. I have experienced that I got virii from the same ip
several times per day. And then also 2 copies of it at the same time.

This had nothing to do with machines in a masked network. All where
single machines.

Wait till the next one that keeps on hammering. Btw the last time I
received numerous copies of the same virus from the same IP happend to
be the computer of a university employee ;)
