Reporting Little Blue Men

Just about every night someone(s) tries to use us as the "innocent
third party" in smurf attacks.  Of course, we block and log all the
broadcast packets.

Is there any point in trying to report these attacks?  Who would we
report them to?  We don't know what the source is, after all the
address is spoofed.  It seems kind of pointless to notify the victim
-- they already know they have been smurfed.

I want to do my part to try to stop attacks, but I'm baffled on this

We have changed our name!  Corporate Communications Technology is now
known as Chesapeake Communications Corporation.
