Re: Solution: Re: Huge smurf attack
Hi. Let me a few words. I was talking to a few of this kids last months, and unfortunately everything is not so easy to fix. Yes, 99.9% of this attacks are _the kid's play_. I do not know how to fix kid's heads over the whole world, but let's imagine you have found some way to do it. And... let's be waiting for someone - not kid, from Iraq, for example, who use this as the electronic weapon. Why not? It's amazing but this kid's games have a positive effect among the negative ones. Yes, they cause a problems and make a troubles for someone. On the other hand, they allow you to see where do you have the weakness _BEFORE_ someone seriously try to exploit this. As we are talking here - the pike (in the river) don't allow other fishes to slumber (sorry for the bad translation). > Fixing the kids heads, I'm sure we all agree, would be the correct solution. > But I don't believe this is really practical or possible. So what should be > done is to make it so that they have no effect. > > So my position is that until we do have a practical solution to solve the > cause of the problem, we simply have to deal with the effects the best we > can, and this does mean dealing with and addressing the symptoms so that > we do not suffer the effects.
