Hash: SHA512

I'm not going to put a lot of effort into hosting
ga.us.dns.opennic.glue. If the garbage continues, I'll probably just
turn Bind off. I do real business on that VM and don't really need
people tagging it as a pawn in the middle of DDoS attacks.

Adding these rules to my startup for rc.local basically broke my DNS
service. I've removed them for now, which makes me largely dependent
on ddos.pl again. Should it really take an hour or two for that to
stop this stuff?

iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m hashlimit --hashlimit-srcmask 24
- --hashlimit-mode srcip --hashlimit-upto 50/m --hashlimit-burst 10
- --hashlimit-name DNSTHROTTLE --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 53 -j DROP
