it depends on the attack: they say they want the
"Congress to allow them to be able to legally hack"
so it seems not specific to p2p flaws but by using
any known flaws of the target system.
How can you block them ? the same way you block
normal "hackers" .

it depends on the "agreement law" between your country and US,
Anyway they should cooperate with the local country police,
because (fortunately) DMCA is not a "global law"; so they can
be persecuted if they hack on to my pc that is outside us law;
if not, well, there would be so many law about privacy, private rights,
local law that were breaked, that i should start to think of living
in a world with a "us dictatorship", and that "1984" is now true.
Anyway, Stay in touch with debian security updates and watch your logs :-)
