Also, this jumped out at me:

"The problem with the recent attack is that the originating IP addresses 
were evenly distributed within the IPV4 universe," McAfee says. "This is 
virtually impossible using spoofing."

Am I missing something, or is an even distribution of originating IP 
addresses virtually impossible *without* using spoofing?
