Re: [nsp] known networks for broadcast ping attacks

A cheap solution for routers who are not expected to forward LAN broadcast
packets is to put a host route in the router to route packets to the
broadcast address to null0.  This reduces the per packet overhead of an
access list and silently discards these bad packets.

Aren't packets sent to null0 process switched?
