Re: register.com down sev0?
Randy, I don't think I implied anything of the sort. I did, however, pipe up when a BCP is mentioned that I endorse, and co-authored -- and likewise, cannot figure out for life of me, why there is such push-back from the Ops community on doing The Right Thing. Having said that, botnets don't need to spoof addresses -- the sheer dispersion of geographic and AS infection base renders the whole point of spoofing almost moot. And having said that, it doesn't make BCP 38 any less valid. - ferg -- Randy Bush <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > I don't want to detract from the heat of this discussion, as > important as it is, but it (the discussion) illustrates a point > that RIPE has recognized -- and is actively perusing -- yet, ISPs > on this continent seem consistently to ignore: The consistent > implementation of BCP 38. oh? you have knowledge that this botnet attack used spoofed source addresses? randy -- "Fergie", a.k.a.
