[Mailman-Users] Defending against DDOS style scanning

Hi Folks,

We had a group of machines hit our mailman server hard last night -- trying all the advertised lists and their corresponding URLS.  After shutting down and restarting the webserver, the attempts stopped.

What (if anything) are folks doing to protect against such events?
