RE: FBI / NIPC released a DDoSD detection tool?

I don't care where it purports to be from, for this kind of code, I will not
trust something [to not be a trojan] that I can not compile myself. This
policy applies to SSH, SSL, and other security related code. I am sure that
I am not the only one with this policy.
