There is also code available that sends a kill message to the individual
nodes attacking you upon reception of the attack for the original versions
of trinoo (the non-spoofed or spoofed with the last octet only udp flood
version). Unfortunantly I havn't had a chance to look at the src for any
of the newer flood programs, if someone would be so kind as to forward me
a copy perhaps there are some more easily exploitable ways to use their
poorly designed distributed programs against them, or if nothing else at
least write a scanner with freely distributable source.
