DDos apparently not http related

  • From: George Herbert

I would like to make clear a bit of info...
The discussion I started about attacker
bandwidth multiplication and HTTP GET attacks
was based on theoretical concerns and other
possibilities which, as information is coming
out now, appear to be unrelated to the actual
current attacks.  I had been thinking that
it might be that type based on some comments
by a Yahoo staffer, but was told late today
that he'd been slightly misquoted and that
all the current attacks are variants of
ping flood, syn flood, etc. (known TFN-2K
code being used, apparently, or so sez Cnet).
