6. Excessive traffic notifications
OxCERT may notify units in the event of a system being seen to generate unusually large amounts of network traffic. Such notifications are purely warnings and OxCERT will not impose a block; it is up to individual units to decide whether they feel a local block is appropriate.
IT officers should check out the affected machines promptly; OxCERT have had cases where a warning has apparently gone ignored and a copyright violation notice for the system has subsequently been received.
