Fyodor Speaks on Internet DOS Attack

Fyodor has a great writeup on what's going on with the TCP Resource Exhaustion DOS attack. You can read about it here: http://insecure.org/stf/tcp-dos-attack-explained.html . This makes sense based on what has been talked about. This seems to be a problem that has been around for a while, but as there has been confirmation that these packets can't be forged, this attack becomes blockable.
