Re: DDOS attacks lately?
That is completly NOT the case. Once they cannot take over channels they just like to cause havoc. We run a server on the Dalnet IRC Network and see SYN floods, Smurfs (Decreasing in frequency), fraggle, modified varients of pepsi and a number of other attacks. Other servers have reported attacks upto 150mbs. Only way to deal with it is with the FBI really. You can't effectivly filter it as it's normall spoofed. Best you can do is drop udp and icmp at the border (Even better if you can get your transit providers to drop it to that host at their meeting point with you), and deny all traffic locally on the machine except open ports. Even doing this, we still get taken down for maybe 5 minutes once a month.
