Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47386] Remote Apache TCP stack DOS
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2009 14:10:50 GMT

Don't follow Rudiger's link, it's cyclic.

Every network application is affected by such attacks, this is a protocol
level issue.  It occurs at the network layer, not the application layer,
as demonstrated by the fact that AcceptFilter in httpd has no impact on
the attack.

The solution, like the problem, lies in the network layer.  See iptables
and similar network stack filters to provide protection against this vector.
