Backtrack - DOS attacking techniques
In this tutorial I'll teach you how you can use Backtrack 5 for DoS attacks.
The first and easiest technique, is called Slowloris.
Slowloris makes a lot of connections to a website, and leaves them open in a way that no one else can connect to the website any more until you stop the attack.
You will need the slowloris script:
Start backtrack 5 and download the script above. Preferably move it to the home folder.
1. Create a new document
Call it slowloris.pl
Paste the slowloris script into it and press save
Move it to the home folder to make life easier.
Open a new console window
Type in : perl slowloris.pl -dns www.websitehere.com
Press enter, you should see something like this:
This means that it's working. Try visiting the website you're attacking now and than to see if it's down.
If it is not down after 2 minutes, this technique probably won't work on that particular website.
This is part 1.
Part 2 will follow soon !
