Hello, Andrew. I came across your website while researching tcp/ip attacks that can route packets to the wrong, or unintended host. I'm familiar with the SYN flood attack, but I'm not really grasping where in the attack the attacker has successfully rerouted packets where the user didn't intend and, furthermore, what this allows the attacker to achieve aside from DOS.

Thanks, Andrew. I look forward to hearing back from you.
