so... the loic tool uses the host's local address, the attacks are all
HTTP based, or tcp/80 with malformed HTTP... someone with server logs
could certainly get a list of the ips involved and hand that over to
the FBI for proper action.

I know that the folks involved on the MC side already have this data,
and that the fbi is interested in it.
