This is the only entry in the database. The appear to have found an ftp
server on port 8021 and concluded we were compromised. This is the port
used by zope(.org) for ftp access. We were running zope in the past, but
aren't using it actively and it's not currently listening on that port.
Since the helo string they quote lists a zope component, that's probably
what we saw, though it's always possible we've been compromised.
Certainly their test is broken if running a private ftp server is enough
to get you on the list. More collateral damage in the email wars.
I've requested a retest, which should get us off the list.

Sometimes forgery is useful. Otherwise it's a nice idea.
