DDoS

We got SYN flooded by a DDoS. 50 Mbps of incoming SYN packets isn't good. Things broke.

We setup a bunch of firewall and rate limiting rules on the BIG/ip now, though. Shouldn't happen (as easily?) again.

Whoever did it is a punk. These little dickless morons can't break into the car, so they decide instead to slash its tires. Well now our tires have metal guards. Die.

I need to go study... two finals tomorrow. 3 days until freedom.

Thanks to dormando, ff, and lisa for diagnosing, helping fix, and rebooting, respectively.
