You can use filter files to constrain the impact this spam has, or you
can bump up the number after alt.privacy.anon-server in
/var/spool/news/leaf.node/NAME.OF.YOUR.NEWS.SERVER (replace the last

Tethereal is part of the "ethereal" package and is the command-line
version of ethereal. I like it better than tcpdump for application-level
network debugging. Get it at http://www.ethereal.com/ -- Ethereal is
under the GNU General Public License, and it requires GTK+. However,
there's no need for you to install ethereal for this purpose, tcpdump is
fine also.
