Spoof attacks

Earlier, when logging on normally I discovered that my Internet connection had literally come to a crawl: simple pings to google.com took over 3000 ms. Then I remembered that I may have mentioned it here before (or earlier), but I can’t find that particular entry:

Some (fixed/reserved) Aliant IP-addresses are frequently under attack. I’m not sure why or which IPs, but the the one allotted to me this morning was literally under fire every each second. The firewall held up good, but came (as said) almost to a standstill.

Next time, I should remind myself to collect those ‘dirty’ IP addresses and forward them to Aliant: not that I expect them to be able to something about it.
