Sockstress: A new and effective DoS attack

,----[ Quote ]
| When someone asked Fyodor if he knew whether his bug was the same one found
| by Louis and Lee, he answered:
|
| "I don't, since they have refused to release full details. But this sounds
| like the same fundamental bug. Robert and Jack are smart fellows, so, again,
| I'm sure that they've found ways to extend and improve the attack in certain
| situations."
