Just a FYI,

That &quot;horrific trend&quot; has been happening since some techie got

dissed on an IRC channel over 20 years ago.

He used a bunch of hosted putters to ICMP flood the IRC server\.

Whatever the community is behind, until the carriers decide to wise

up this will keep happening, that is without talking about the
industries being developed around DDoSes events.

Enjoy your weekend\. \( I ain&#39;t on call anymore anyway =D \)

THat only worked because of patents:


Inband signaling is bad, mmmkay?

(Inband signalling - bad except for BGP?)

General comment: why are we blaming the client devices for the lack of security?

This is like Microsoft villifying linux in the late 90s because "there's no
restrictions on use or packet crafting on the client side" - of course there
isn't, in Windows either -- cant trust the client side, ever. Check out online
gaming, so many h4x 'n bots.

Let's stop trying to fix the clients, there'll always be bad actors/crappy coding.

Let's fix the networks.

Pay-to-play? People are sensitive in the pocketbooks. NetCoin or something to
purchase dataflows? I dont know. Also sounds terrible. ("That's an internet
tax!!!111"). But Something Must Be Done[tm], by us, soon, or we'll be
dealing with govt cures which will be worse than the disease.

Regulating devices will never happen. Have you checked out world trade
regulations? The US can't get Chinese firms to stop shipping
deadly-to-the-touch chemwep/drug carfentanil, how we gonna enforce security
standards on COTS electronics? (More govt soln's/approvals too. Fear.)

We have control of the networks. Lets do something.

(cant find the carfentanil story on nytimes anymore, pulled?
