I know. It is crazzy. I actually would like to see some sort of a better
defence than just standing there uselessly. I mean, in real life if
a country (community etc..) gets attacked by another, there is
usually a "war" and someone is tought a lesson. But here, all we
do is sit arround do nothing.
I usually get about 20 probes per day for ssh or relay. And for other
1808 234K DROP all -- * * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
over 10 day period. I realize, that's nothing if you are an ISP.
LOL, imagine what microsoft.com has to be getting!!!
