Haven't been able to access the link, so I'm going to guess it's poor wording, as in he meant

4 new sysctls from OpenBSD to avoid ipv6 DoS attacks

or

4 new sysctls to avoid ipv6 DoS attacks, from OpenBSD

Sometimes, punctuation is everything.

hahaha that's awesome. Punctuation is indeed everything:

"Let he who steals, steal no more. Let him work with his hands."
"Let he who steals, steal. No more let him work with his hands."

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.

"Why?" asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

"Well, I'm a panda," he says. "Look it up."

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eats,_Shoots_%26_Leaves -- a great book.
