I was recently attacked with some denial of service attacks. Squid was
being send rapid data requests and it choked squid and the bandwidth. The
squid usage went extremely high I guess with dummy requests. I had set
quick abort to 0 0 98 but still it kept getting the data to the point it
choked itself. Please can someone enlighten this matter. I would greately
appreciate it. What is the solution to this. I cant block http requests ?
