I want to ask how secure the operating system open suse 11.2 with kernel kernel-desktop version 188.8.131.52-0.1.1 from DDOS attacks?
Does SuSEFirewall2 tools help eliminate DDOS attack?

I have been using my own self-made "iptables rules" for blocking all the major type of DDOS attacks on game-servers because these attacks were application/game-server specific instead of the general DDOS attacks. It took me almost 3 years to study those attacks and respond with these rules.
Here is a slightly different take on DDOS attacks. Rather than a server with dynamic content being attack i was curious how to deal with attacks on servers with STATIC CONTENT. This means cpu tends to not be an issue. Its either bandwidth or connection problems.
How would i mitigate a DDOS attack knowing nothing about the attacker (for example country, ip address or anything else).
Who have the DDoS attackers not hit, is the question? This morning, RSS reader and feed-syncing platform Feedly is being hit by a distributed denial-of-service attack, where again the criminals are attempting to extort money in return for returning the service to normal operations. And only yesterday, Evernote was a victim of a similar attack.
I found this interesting and I thought others would as well. This is a write-up and video demonstration of how sFlow and OpenFlow can be combined to deliver DDoS mitigation. It seems that enabling standard sFlow in the switches and routers provides a continuous stream of measurement data which can provide real-time detection and notification of DDoS attacks.
