On the back of other 'security' posts....

Hi All,

On the back of the latest round of security related posts, anyone notice the 50% packet loss (as reported to me) across the USA -> NZ links around lunchtime (GMT+10) today?

Yet more spoofed traffic aimed at the SORBS nameservers - this time enough to crash a core router of my upstream... Hopefully the commercial damage now may insite people getting damaged by these DDoSes to start proceedings against those ISPs whom continue to show a lack of respobsibility and allow unfiltered spoofed DDoS traffic from their networks. Certainly I have been told to talk to various US authorities about the problem, and will be doing so as soon as I have the nessesary information.

In the mean time a plea to people on this list in all countries - watch for the DDoS attacks (particually against,, & and stop the damn traffic before you are held responsible for your customers actions. There is still a 10k pps SYN flood occuring 8 hours later - this is being rate limited upstream.

..and if the perps are on this list, keep going if you want, the more you do the more likely you'll get caught. You will not force SORBS off the net like you have Osirusoft. I and SORBS will leave when we are good and ready, and not because of some infantile spotty faced 15 year old nerd without a clue on life.
