Re: UBB, Overages, and malicious users

...

You are missing the point. DoS isn't the attack. Just usage service fees.

$100 of usage would be enough to piss me off. In fact, it's better if their service isn't affected, it would go undetected longer. No need for amplification.

How could a residential user even begin to 'prove' an attack after the fact?

Chances are, their D-LINK router is silently dropping the easily available 1.5Mbps garbage traffic.

End user won't know anything's up until the next time they check their usage.

EDIT: Also, I'm not being attacked. For a home user though, this is a nightmare.
