OpenBSD At the 2005 OpenBSD hackathon, Fernando Gont proposed ways to fix a 20 year old flaw in the design of the ICMP protocol that could be used to make TCP attacks. Kerneltrap has the details.

This is good to hear. I wish them luck in fixing ICMP.

The OpenBSD team has been great on security, and their flavor of BSD is simple and effective. Highly recommended for firewalls and web servers.
