Any chance you can let Gadi Evron know? :) At least some anonymous 
cowards do some interesting SMTP spoofing.

As to the DNS thread going on over at the DNS-operations mailing list, 
apparently these amplification attacks have been going on for a while 
now (i.e. "longer than we think").

One good thing that may come out of this aside to dealing with badly 
handled recursion is more attention to BCP38 now that somehow people 
believe working on it is important enough.

Two good things out of one bad, I call it a win.

Like Barry Greene said, there are not bad sides or immense costs to 
implementing BCP38. Now that people are believers maybe next time we 
will all be smarter when we have "currently not exploited problems" to 
fix. :o)
