I may be wrong but I believe
1. some udp service can be attacked by a spoofing
2. some tcp services can be attacked by a shotgun approach --
pump the command sequence that would be sent assuming replies
did make it back. Ie. attacker doesn't worry about lock step protocol
but pipes all the commands at one go.
But I may be wrong.
