ICMP is only one of a dozen ways to attack people. There is no point in specially targetting ICMP. Unfortunately, it is, in practice, impossible to log ALL the traffic across a very busy router at an exchange point. In my opinion, the only long term solution here is software that is "smart" about tracebacks -- that is, can be directed in real time to log certain classes of traffic. Perry
