SYN floods continue

I must say that I agree about the SYN floods being a huge problem. A lot
of our customers are getting "attacked" as well as possibly some of our

While I despise the "death of the net" phrase, I agree something must be
done. But a few filters in a few core routers in a few small ISPs will have
a null effect on the situation.

Until this problem becomes gigantic enough that it affects large networks
such as MCI, Sprint, UUNet, etc. I don't predict much will be done.
So I presume the best we can hope for is that.. and this may sound a bit
nasty.. that the bigger networks start getting attacked. That is the only
way there will be a call to arms.
