A real layer-3 [d]DoS saturates your pipe, nothing you can do with a "script"
on your box will help, it can only be mitigated upstream / waited out.

Like the SSH ATTACK whiners, the feelgood "block" above is really just
hiding some minor personal annoyance, kernel time, and return traffic.
The latter two being relavent only if you $pay for them.
