Random Walk writes "A group of researchers from the UCSD Supercomputer Center has used a
technique they call "backscatter analysis" to study
the prevalence and targets of DoS attacks. They claim that
their study is
"the only publically available data quantifying
denial-of-service activity in the Internet", and
provide interesting statistics on attack rates, durations, and victims."CT:This is an amazing report.
