Hi,
 
I am not an expert in the whole packet filtering thing (hence my nickname), but I have heard previously, that it is possible to send a 'fake packet'. By this, I mean that lets say the packet header is a TCP packet, whereas the body content is something nasty. Does IP tables filter this sort of packet, or would it be more down to the IDS such as snort?

Thanks

Antony
