Fell of the Net tonight (bloody annoying)

Denial of Services or DOS for sort, basically means someone sending packets to you that you router/computer tries to respond to but can’t, and just waits until the connection times out, eventually your computer/router uses so much of it’s resources trying to respond to these spurious packets, that it can’t respond to legitimate packets and drops off the internet. See shortented TCP-Dump below, couldn’t put it all on since it lasted for 20 minute (not that interesting really 🙂
