Yeah, it sucked to be a Dyn customer that day.  However, if you had a
backup dns provider, it wasnt that bad.

You do realize that collateral effect scale  is a property of a target and
not attack?

My point was that implementing MANRS, while isn't covering all of the
spectrum of the attacks that made news this autumn will make at least some
of them if not impossible, but harder to execute.

And as I said - its work in progress.

P.S.  Jared Mauch notes regarding uRPF underperformance are correct, but it
only shows how rarely its actually used in a real life.  uRPF is more then
feasible in terms of algorithmical complexity, and this means that bugs can
be dealed with.
