You could use TTL filtering in ACLs to filter packets with specific TTL value to protect the local device and downstream from TTL expiry attack

Or on the 6500 you could use hardware-based rate limiters to protect the local device from TTL expiry attacks.

Flexible packet matching can be used to filter on specific fields within the IP packet hearders including TTL value.
