I know Slammer is a few years back now, and some of you are probably already aware of it, but can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it really was?

About half way down the page above is Slammer's simple code (starting at 'step one').

 

Slammer;

  • Fit inside 1 UDP package at less than 376 bytes.
  • DoS'd about 75,000 SQL Servers and affected millions of machines in less than 15 minutes.
  • Chose victims at random, at hundreds of IP attempts per second per machine, so no one was safe.
  • I don't think they ever even found out who did it? (citation needed)

 

I think I need some time alone with a box of tissues.
