  Hmm. I didn't know about that one! I suppose it's possible. Of course, if
you were in promiscous mode as well, you'd probably start getting other
systems' packets and would immediately know that an attack was underway.
Unless the attack was on a router a few hops upstream from you.

  I guess the only way to know for sure is to know your ISP's network
