Huge smurf attack
We are currently seeing a smurf attack larger than any one we've ever seen before... it looks like it's causing us over 200Mb/s of incoming echo-reply traffic to 22.214.171.124 (our IRC server, imagine that). Please check your networks and see if you can help us trace this attack to the perpetrator, we'd love to prosecute if we can find them.
