While DDOSing my pool, check out what this asshole sent me

So I run blisterpool.com (simple p2pool node + layer of bonuses), and this asshole decides to try to extort 2btc from me. My node has been under a ddos attack for about 2-3 hours now.
I get an email to all my addresses, and then finally a message on bitcointalk a few minutes ago. Copy/pasta of message:

Your mining server is extremely vulnerable to ddos attacks
I want to offer you info how to properly setup your protection, so that you can't be ddosed, at >least not with so little power. My price is 2 Bitcoin only.
Right now I'm running small (very small) attack which will not crash your server, but you should >notice it in logs. Just check it.
If I increase the attack size, I could completely crash, it would drop all connections and damage >would be big... Don't worry, I will not do it. Smiley
I want to offer you info on how I did it and what you have to do to prevent it. If interested pay me 2 BTC to 17aLGgw8AwJdqiBtMMG1QtQJgNQQkiyEsp
Thank you.
It's a shame for him that I can just shut the server down for a while and join one of the hundred other public p2pool nodes out there.

Your Bitcoins or Your Site: An Analysis of the DDoS for Bitcoins (DD4BC) DDoS Extortion Campaign.

Deutschen Unternehmen droht eine weitere große Welle von DDoS-Erpressungen durch die kriminelle Vereinigung DD4BC (DDoS for Bitcoins). Nach dem bisherigen Höhepunkt der Bitcoin-Erpressungen im Juni/Juli 2015 attackieren die Cyberkriminellen seit einigen Tagen wieder verstärkt Finanzunternehmen in Deutschland. Ihre Forderungen belaufen sich auf bis zu 50 Bitcoins (ca. 10.400 Euro). Bitcoin cyber criminals by the name of "DD4BC" have plotted to launch cyber attacks against some of our biggest financial institutions, including Westpac and Macquarie Bank. DD4BC is a malicious group responsible for several Bitcoin extortion campaigns, and has expanded its distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack campaigns against Akamai customers in recent months. DD4BC’s previous attacks targeted bitcoin exchanges and gaming sites, presumably due to the assumption that these types of businesses would refrain from reporting attacks to law enforcement authorities. Based on the recent threats we’ve seen, it would appear that DD4BC has also started targeting the payment industry. In this post we wanted to share our insights into these attacks so ... “DD4BC has been using the threat of DDoS attacks to secure Bitcoin payments from its victims for protection against future attacks.
