"Who is the linux geek in your org?" That somtimes finds the DNS guy. :)

As to spoofing, I doubt Fergie will agree that it is "not solvable", why
do you think so?

Unrelated.. going back to the post you answered..
One thing I do know, though, is that this comes to once again show that
just because something is not "currently" being exploited, doesn't mean it
doesn't have to get fixed.

I believe just a couple of mounths ago some of us argued on if spoofing
even needs to get any attention, as most DDoSing happens with botnets.

Raises a bell? It's what *most* people in the net-ops world say to this
day. How many other problems are we going to ignore until they are here -

This isn't about philosophy, it's about how we keep doing things. Forget
malice, any mistake that can happen, will happen. That has been proven
beyond doubt.
