I have a problem believing it is a useful case study in the global > network. Considering the dependence upon the internet in South Korea, and the well connected nature, it's worthwhile to watch what happens there for possible future trends here. It's not unusual for at least the US Domestic market to be behind Asia in a lot of ways.. I suspect the South Korea issue that was spoken of was really about what happened in Korea during the ms-sql/slammer event where it caused a lot of things to stop working due to dependence upon networking. if ms-sql slammer happened again this week, it would still be a big deal.. i'd have to say, what have you done since then to prepare yourselves for a large distributed source/dest attack (which is what it actually looked like). - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from email@example.com clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
