	Why don't you report the problem to your ISP and have them
	trace the attack.

	Firstly just because the traffic appears to come from
	E.root-servers.net does not mean that it is coming from

	Secondly E.root-servers.net may be a innocent victim itself.

	You havn't told us what type of traffic you are receiving.  Your
	ISP will atleast want to know that.
