> I don't think my first post made it through, so here goes again. Our web
server has been completely bombarded for about four hours now by a specific
range of IP addresses. Our T1 line has been at 100% capacity during this
ordeal. We are receiving around 250 packets per second from a range of IPs
that I cannot completely trace.

to be legit http requests for port 80. The requests cycle through from one
IP after the next and then the cycle starts over. I have tried using to trace the numbers to no avail. I can only
get within the last five nodes before the trace times out.

worm or a DOS but I'm not sure yet. Thanks in advance.
