Re: FBI / NIPC released a DDoSD detection tool?

  • From: Declan McCullagh
  • Date: Thu Feb 10 12:11:57 2000


Those binaries have been there for about a month, the same time as the Feds published the "trinoo" alert (about half a year late, but who's counting). This page has the date: http://www.fbi.gov/nipc/welcome.htm

Somehow I doubt that the NIPC wrote the code.

I'm not sure if this is news or not, but looking at
http://www.fbi.gov/nipc/trinoo.htm - it seems the NIPC has released
binaries, (no source code, the jerks), for tools to detect if a box has
trin00, tribal flood net, tfn2k and some other DDoSD's on it.

So far they have a sparc solaris, intel solaris, and x86 linux binary for
download. While I am shocked to see a government agency writing
potentially usefull code so quickly, I am dissappointed they didn't
release their source code so it can be ported to say.. FreeBSD? .. AIX ..
HP/UX ...  and so on...
