Found 5 gigs of files on my hard drive, apparently I set up IIS's ftp server when I was doing some file recovery for a friend and left it wide open. Sure enough, in november someone found it and started dumping files on there. There don't seem to have been any compromises beyond the public directory, but I'm looking into the extent of the hack and making sure there aren't any nasties living on my machine, and also why the firewall didn't stop it (probably because I allowed it to happen).
