Subject: SYN Attacks

   I know some of ya'll are using NT. Microsoft has released a patch which
they say defends NT servers from SYN attacks. You can get it from here:


ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/NT351/hotfixes-postSP5/syn-attack/

   This is, however, a hot-fix. MS recommends that you apply it ONLY if your
system is under attack. Otherwise, you should wait for Service Pack 6. More
information is available here:
