gentlemen, stop your engines

  • From: Paul Vixie

after six reports that 192.5.5.241's address has been forged as the source
of a tcp "fragmented scan" probe, i'm ready to have it stop.  but just in
case it doesn't, this is fair warning to the community: F's address is in
unlawful use by as-yet-unidentified third parties.
