craft packets to make you go deaf. (Like making sure your Snort box is blocking
access to the outside DNS server...because it received a UDP packet that was
bad, that it thinks came from the DNS server.)

FWIW: this is where you would white list those external critical systems like 
trusted upstream DNS servers ;)
