2 0.0.0.0 is a network and not an unicast address, thought this would be clearer

Would this ddosDoS attack be effective:

Attacker locates target (0.0.0.)

Attacker sends ack packets to a buch of web servers with a src addr of 0.0.0.0

Servers reply to 0.0.0.0 with syn packets

  1. Attacker determines target (10.0.0.1)

  2. Attacker sends ack packets to a buch of web servers with a src addr of 10.0.0.1

  3. Servers reply to 10.0.0.1 with syn packets

So, isIs the target effectively dosed or have we added an arbitrary steps to the equation?
