What kinds of attacks have you pool operators been noticing and what was your best bet to mitigate it?

On a side note, the attacks seem to be less frequent and more targeted towards the largest mining pools recently... perhaps they are somewhat benevolent in nature and only trying to "even out" the playing field?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I don't think any of the pool operators are going to answer this.
Any info posted will only help whoever is DDoSing more efficient.

I don't know what they are most vulnerable to, but I'm tired of the pools I use getting attacked.  It really needs to stop.

If no pool owners will, then perhaps somebody who knows more about pushpool and/or bitcoin in general can help me out?

I have proposed a solution to ddosing the bitcoind client's port on this thread.
