A site can use anti-spoofing filters on their router/firewall (even if the ISP
can't or won't do it on their end) to make sure that their machines don't
forge source addresses. This might stop any of their machines which have been
compromised from really doing participating in the attack. (I say "might"
because the slave daemons don't have to forge addresses.)
Other misc. ideas are in:
(BTW, a "advisory" version of unicast RPF-type stuff would be immensely
helpful in deploying URPF, "source validation," ingress filtering, or whatever
you want to call it.)
