Techworld.com - Hackers Snort at intrusion detection security

Techworld.com - Hackers Snort at intrusion detection security


First of all the exploit can't be done on every version of Snort, on every platform with a single UDP packet. True, that it only takes one UDP packet to trip the system, it physically cannot be coded to affect every version of Snort into one packet.


This is not the Witty Worm, and it's not the Slammer worm either. For as "trivial" as ISS claims it to be, I don't see a worm out yet!!!


HD Moore (of metasploit fame) has attempted to exploit the vulernability on every platform (proving to the community it can't be done), he is on his 33rd attempt at last known point.
