There is something not right about it, because there is no way they can
tell if an ICMP or UDP attack is valid or not (specific examples ping/snmp
probe/dns query).  Either stick is very poorly coded (not using believable
settings for initial ttl, window size, etc) for they are doing some
threshold like you said.  Depends on what they do once they detect a flood
of alerts - start sniping everything from that IP?  Ignore it? :)

I've got the latest realsecure (with patch) to play with, but not a copy
of stick.  Anyone else have a copy?
