so long as you are sure they aren't spoofed, yes.

A recent post by Rob Thomas said, "I've tracked 1787 DDoS attacks since 01
JAN 2003.  Of that number, only 32 used spoofed sources.  I rarely see
spoofed attacks now."

Thats about 1%.  Of the few attacked directed at us and originating from
our customers, that generally jives.  What number are you seeing ?

More and more there is less and less spoofing, its just not required and
it causes more damage with less effort :( Why spoof when you have 1000
machines pumping 1 packet per second? (or 10)
