    This is not a smart move. For a few reasons.

    The first, how do you know who "attacked" you is, in fact, the one who attacked you? IP Spoofing does exist and if you retaliate you may attack an innocent.

    In addition, by going after the attacker you are really doing something no better than he/she is -- it's illegal. So why put yourself at risk? Be smart. Have logs. Submit them to the police (local, state, federal -- whatever branch deals best with Cybercrime) and have them follow up. Contact the attackers ISP and inform them. They can take steps to disable his service (few ISPs want to live with the reputation that ISPs like AOL and @Home earned -- Script Kiddie Havens).

    I hope this helps you a little more
