GRC.com recently fell victim to a packet-flooding DoS attack. His account of the whole ordeal, which includes some of his correspondence with the attacker, is fairly interesting, as is his assertion that Microsoft, in implementing the complete Unix sockets specification for Win2000/XP, has opened the Internet to "an escalation of Internet terrorism the likes of which has never been seen before."
