Re: Solution: Re: Huge smurf attack
My only question is do any of you who've been under attack report these incidents to the FBI and the other appropriate agencies? I understand that a lot of these places are Universities and Govt. agencies where finding someone to fix the problem is like running through water, but I can only wonder if having the FBI get involved in these things would help. Two agents from the Houston office recently gave a presentation talking about their new and expanding computer crimes divisions popping up around the country. They kept harping on protecting the infrastructure of the nations public networks, and I think helping track down smurf amplifiers would fall under this. -- Joseph Shaw - firstname.lastname@example.org NetAdmin/Security - Insync Internet Services Free UNIX advocate - "I hack, therefore I am."
