Subject: [Dshield] DNS DOS attempt. need a bit of help

: Hello,
: Since last week, my server is the target of a DOS atempt against DNS.
: Some IPs in Holland tries to saturate the server with root requests
: (at a arte of several thousands per seconds). The server is holding
: out without problem (it's configured to auto-block anyone sending more
: than 100 requests per seconds and I have also blocked the specific IP
: on the IP level) but I would like this assault to stop.
: The attacker is wich is a DSL address in home.nl. My
: main problem is that I'm strictly unable to read their web page in
: order to find neither their phone number nor their abuse address.
: Could someone who understand the language give me a hand there ?
: My other problem is the following: This particular attacker is pretty
: dumb but I'm worried at what could happen if he brightens up and start
: spoofing it's source IP, either with random IPs, making it impossible
: for me to simply block him based on that criteria or using IPs of
: innocent third-parties which would either make my machine deny service
: to them or effectively using my DNS server as a traffic amlifier,
: flooding them with UDP packets. What kind of counter-measures exists
: to stop that kind of issues ?
: Thanks,
: Stephane
