More on blue security DDOS - DDOS response
On May 1st Handler Jim Clausing wrote about the Woes of Blue Security at http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?storyid=1304

A couple of readers have written in about the threat of DDOS. One reader asks:
" I always read about large company X was under attack from a DDOS and within a few [hours|days] it was brought under control. My question is, how?"

I would like to start to compile a list of steps to respond to this. So if you have any suggestions send them in I will get a list out over the weekend.

thanks Dan

An initial document regarding DDOS mitigation.  http://www.madjic.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DDOSMitigationTechniques
Please feel free to send changes or suggestions. I will continue to research and update this document over the course of the next several months.
