DOS Attacks and reliable network contact data.

  • From: Jason Slagle

I've seen an increase in DOS attacks over the past week or so, of a form I
really haven't encountered before.  Below are some logs.

22:30:52.821705 255.255.255.255.80 > 205.133.127.30.6667: R 0:0(0) ack

Lots and lots of TCP ACK's from broadcast addresses.  Looks like a new
kind of indirect SYN/ACK flood based on broadcast addresses.

Which led me to sort through my logs and do my best to get the amps shut
down, which led me to my current problem/gripe.

Their exists no reliable way to get the contact of a network without first
querying arin, then apnic, then the .jp registry for instance.  This is a
royal PITA and is in no way scriptable that I can see.

Am I wrong?  Does such a thing exist?  What can we do bout these attacks.
