how are you certain that the udp/53 1500 byte packet is 'dns'? and not
kazaa/gnutella/bittorrent/vpn-in-udp-53 ? It seems that filtering the
TRAFFIC is short sighted on several fronts :( deciding if you will/won't
be part of the global-recursive-dns-server 'problem' is entirely different

temporary filters can be. Crippling EDNS0 transport in the future
seems like a very high price to pay for what might be a very
temporary, short-term reduction in attack traffic.

seems like global tcp/139|tcp/445 filters, or bogon filters... bits put
into configs 'now' and completely forgotten about 'tomorrow' :(
