DL Flooder

Posted: March 28, 2006

This MSN Messenger flooder overloads the server by continuous pinging. That causes a DoS attack. Flooders can jam the IRC connection or even corrupt some vital files, such as registry, key files etc. Such applications are often used on IRC channels to disturb communications. However, almost every self-respecting IRC channel is protected by special Flood detection algorithms. It was created in April 2002.
