The DAO fix would cause a DoS attack

Conclusions:

The current soft fork deployed in Ethereum poses a DoS vector. If the soft fork activation goes ahead as planned, the community should be prepared for potential DoS attacks, which would lead to diminished performance for the network. We urge the community to come to consensus on the ultimate resolution of The DAO saga as quickly as possible.
