You need old school circuit switched technology to secure packet switched
networks. There is only one way to guarantee security. Turn it off. Make
good backups and have the ability to go back to the way it was before the
problem occurred regardless of the flavor of IP.
For every code, there is a de-code.

I couldn't disagree more; DDOS, spam and virii are very often launched
from zombie machines. You'll get a perfectly valid path back to a
perfectly well owned box with a completely perplexed person that has no
idea why you're getting irate with them. IPv6 doesn't do anything to stop
