Mikrotik DDoS and SYN Flood rules
I will present you some rules which you can apply to protect yourself from some of the DDoS or SYN Flood attacks or at least to mitigate as much as you can.I say some because it depends how much traffic Your ISP->Your Connection(s)->Your Devices can handle.I consider this attack very dangerous as you can do very little or nothing in some cases if you experience traffic of lets say around 100Gbit/s.Very little organizations can handle this kind of traffic.It depends how much enemies you have made and how much botnet zombies they hired from the attracker/s for the attack.
