After reading that article, if this product really is capable of 'counter striking DDoS attacks', my assumption is that it will fire packets back at the nodes attacking it. Doing such an attack would not be neither feasible or legal. You would only double the affect that the initial attack caused to begin with, plus you would be attacking hacked machines and not the culprit themselves, thus pouring gasoline all over an already blazing inferno.
Plus imagine an attack originates behind one of these devices for some reason attacking another device. It'll just create a massive loop. :) That would be interesting.
