1)is it possible to reverse attack the bots which is attacking us?
for example say if we got hit by some bots and we have logged their ip address,and instead of blocking them can we set our router to send the packets to them with-out being processes by our routers?Because i think it may also over load some of our band-width ,but at the same time the bots also getting attacked nah?
am i right? is it possible to do?how to configure the router to do such an task?
2) 90% of us may have this problem,
And also we are at the "receiving" end of the attack,instead of contacting isp's,law enforcing authorities for this (in reality they wont care about us much because it is a small attack for them)what are the steps we can do to trace back the attacker?
even tough it was some what complex i think it can be still possible to track them down...
We have some servers or some isp home connections,but when DDos Attacks happens on some "important" time and down our servers,we are trying to contact the hosting's-support team or isp whom are very very slow in responding to our questions,
And even they respond ,it is not suffuicient to us,And also most of the times unless the attackers stop the attack we can not do much things..
I really hate this,As a network professionals(i am not a professional,but asking in general) can't we do nothing other than complaining?
Also what can we do to track the original source of the attack?
I know it is really hard,but i don't think it is impossible to do ...
looking for some ideas...,hope i will get some....
