Some people need whatever bandwidth they can get for ranting. Of course routing reports, virus reports and botnet bgp statistics take away a lot of valuable bandwidth that could otherwise be used for nagging. On the other hand without Gadi's howling for the wolves those wolves might be lost species and without the wolves all the nagging and ranting would make less fun.
They can. All you have to do is look for free software and join the devellopers or the testers or report whatever you have found out. When working for Exodus and GLC I have seen I could change security practices. I was working in London, Munich and Frankfurt NOCs. Sorry I did not know about NANOG that time. It would have made my live a lot more interesting.
Therefore, I conclude that discussions of botnets do belong on the NANOG list as long as the NANOG list is
Botnets are networks. We should have the network operators on the NANOG list. (I am afraid we do already have them :)
One thing that surveys, such as the CSI/FBI Security
Maybe it is high time for a transparent frog. Invisible for secure systems but as soon as one of the bots tries to infect it, it will ... In case you are not Gadi or working for Gadi, feel free to ignore the tranparent frog. I have never met one :) Cheers Peter and Karin -- Peter and Karin Dambier Cesidian Root - Radice Cesidiana Graeffstrasse 14 D-64646 Heppenheim +49(6252)671-788 (Telekom) +49(179)108-3978 (O2 Genion) +49(6252)750-308 (VoIP: sipgate.de) mail: [email protected] mail: [email protected] http://iason.site.voila.fr/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/iason/
