You can mitigate the attack (a DDoS attack),... but it is impossible to absolutely stop it, unfortunately. If you have an outward facing IP address that others can readily discern, and they are looking to attack you (specifically), the things you can do on your box to mitigate it are somewhat limited. Your ISP can help (or should), if it continues to become a problem.

I found it on the netfilter.org tutorial section. There you can find lots of other documentation about iptables
