It is just a minor quibble because the point is that the attack was
completely contained in a single packet. The same would have held true
if it was over a TCP/IP connection. Once the attack has been
completed, a TCP RST would provide no value. It is the proverbial
closing the barn doors after the horse is already out.
RST is largely a marketing solution, not a technical solution.
