Knocked out the sucker

I traced out the sucker that was hitting one of our Web Server at the datacenter that brought down the server like 15 times in the last 2 hrs. It took me like 3 hrs to trace it down though, but eventually was successful.

On the mail server side, I am still trying to figure out a way to strengthen the SPF (Sender Policy Framework) records to prevent sender address forgery. Sender address forgery is a threat to users and companies alike, and it even undermines the email medium as a whole because it erodes people’s confidence in its reliability.
