    • Some ways to find real hosting IPs
    • Assume your hosting IP will be found. Because it will.
    • Some ways to prevent direct IP attacks
      • Firewall off your open services. Shared hosts won’t do this, but if you have your own VPS or dedicated server, look at Ultimate Firewall (UWF)
      • htaccess ‘deny’ directives if you can’t use a firewall
        • Be careful what headers you use in htaccess directives. Some can be spoofed.
    • Kelly would rather call Ghostbusters for spoofing issues rather than a real network guy.
