DoS Attacks for Fun and Profit
February 9, 2000 9:11 AM   Subscribe

DoS Attacks for Fun and Profit - It looks like the list has expanded quite a bit this week... enough that the FBI is going to hold a press conference today at 11 PST. This is almost enough to argue against unlimited bandwidth for the average consumer. I hope they track the bastards down; not only does this impact the future success of eCommerce ventures, but it lends to stereotyping the technically elite as potential closet-evildoers.

What purpose will tracking the bastards down serve? The only necessary and effective recourse is to design a system which will not be brought down by these attacks.
