New Denial of Service Attack on Panix

I think Tim was using the assumption (which I consider quite valid) that
once vendors release patches, those being attacked are likely to apply a
patch quite quickly. It's a motivaton issue... people are much more
motivated to save their own butts in a hurry before trying to save
everyone else's. :wink:

I think most folks in this forum are good netizens and want to do the
Right Thing(s) for everyone. Others, especially those not privy to all
the fuss about this issue, are less likely to take action and will
probably be hosting these attacks for a while, possibly w/o knowing it
until someone tracks it down and yells at them and/or they're attacked
themselves (in which case they'll probably reach for things to protect
themselves before trying to protect others).
