Found a way to block him. RingTFM, I found this gem:

  In the following text, daemon is the process name of a network daemon process,

which is the basic idea of hosts.{allow,deny}. No apparent relation to
/etc/services . Process names _generally_ are the same as service names
(modulo in.* and *d), but they don't have to be. So I just added "thttpd :" to /etc/hosts.deny, and haven't heard from him since about
2:30 pm on 13 April.
