Luca662 Posted February 23, 2009 Share Posted February 23, 2009 I just came across an interesting read on Ars technica. http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2009/02...vice-attack.ars People are now starting to do dos attacks on players through xbox live. The article describes the people using a packet-sniffer to find your ip then flooding you with packets. The packet sniffer is most likely cain and abel or ettercap. I'm curious to know what kind of packet they use to flood their victims. Most people have a small upload bandwith and huge download bandwidth meaning you don't have much to work with. Also, I run a small linux server that handles all my connection (I'm currently trying to get a windows sever up and running) and what would be the best way to protect against this attack?
