We have a firewall (was Re: Pakistan government orders ISP servicelevel agreement)
The Pakistan Telecommunications Company Ltd has aquired a firewall to solve the DDOS situation impacting Internet service in the country.

I can understand the Pakistan government minister's frustration, and desire to get things fixed. Unfortunately, it seems like security incidents also attract security snake oil consultants.
