I guess those bots have to sit somewhere.  I don’t know that they would be in routers as much as they would be in Microsoft Windows… so if that’s what you meant, then I see what you mean Michael


Niels, I like my cogent and telia internet connections… I just recall seeing more ddos on cogent then I did on my previous att, and current spectrum… telia is showing a good bit of ddos also 


Let’s put it this way, I can thank Cogent and Telia for helping my get better in my ddos mitigation skills  J   … there’s a bright side to everything huh

So you're saying, Cogent and Telia have the best backbones and 
interconnects and thus deliver the most of your traffic to you, 
even at times of peak utilization?
