    SMTP based DoS attack : more then just DoS

    Hi All,

    please check this its an old technique however still relevant
    http://www.techzoom.net/papers/mail_...tacks_2004.pdf

    i found it releveant coz something simmilar happened recently to me..

    The implications this paper suggest are DoS on SMTP only.

    what i have recently encountered

    if you are using anything other then VPS/Dedicated hosting then you can suffer from mail server abuse clause which can including suspension and / or fine on site owner's name.

    Neo, FB1H2S, the_empty, GodWin and whole of Pune Garage meet group will understand what i am talking about.

    Hey cooltod. I don't think anant here is encouraging people to hack and abuse others, instead he is providing info to protect individuals. It would be great if you could prevent such jesters here after.

    Thanks .

    Just to clear the confusion this writeup was basic information on what devastating effect it could be and as per my general practice also looking for how to prevent it.


    As already told no need to get excited and all guns blazing.....

    Note: this might not work on all hosting coz if they do have a properly configured server they will have this prevented.
    Thats one of the reason why i linked to a 7 yr old paper on this...

    The problem is not with your post Anant, problem is attitude/jester of coolToad towards that post. It is good for us to get knowledge of all the things going on in the InfoSec world, but this knowledge should be used in ethical manner.
