I know this is kind of a crazy idea but how about making cleaning up all these infected machines the priority as a solution instead of defending your dns from your infected clients. They not only affect you, they affect the rest of us so why should we give you a solution to your problem when you don't appear to care about causing problems for the rest of us?

Has anyone figured out a remote but lawful way to repair zombie machines?

    as a comsequence of a virus diffused in my customer-base, I often
    receive big bursts of traffic on my DNS servers.
    Unluckly, a lot of clients start to bomb my DNSs at a certain
    hour, so I have a distributed tentative of denial of service.
    I can't blacklist them on my DNSs, because the infected clients
    are too much.

    For this reason, I would like that a DNS could response maximum to
    10 queries per second given by every single Ip address.
    Anybody knows a solution, just using iptables/netfilter/kernel
    tuning/BIND tuning, without using any hardware traffic shaper?

    Best Regards
