Re: Hey, QWEST clean up your network

Not sure how many places you intend to post this or related
messages, but if you've got a problem vote with your money.
Whining to NANOG and a slew of other mailing lists and still
giving money to Qwest seems silly to me...

Likewise, the Qwest folks likely aren't quite as clueless as
you've attempted to portray them over the last few days, silly
policies (policies that are clearly in place for a reason) can
be fixed -- and I assure you, above all else, money talks...

This is ICMP and TCP MS bad traffic for a 2500 packet
capture on a DS1 that is directly connected to Qwest.
Ergo, Qwest is the transit provider.  Capture period
was about 2 seconds.  ICK

According to Qwest Tech/Noc people they can't leave
filters up for more than 1 day.

Given that this worm has lasted more than 1 day, I'd
think its reasonable to leave filters up for say more
than one day ????


The other thing I learned from QWEST IP-NOC was that
it seems managment decided *NOT TO* filter packets related
to this worm issue at the edge......
