Things are a-brewin’ in Sweden. Sweden is not just home of the infamous bikini team, it is also the home of Outpost 24, an equally sexy software-as-a-service network scanning service, and the employer of my friend Robert E. Lee and his colleague Jack C. Louis. These guys are the inventors of UnicornScan, a user-land TCP stack turned into a port scanner and a new tool "sockstress" anbd it could cause some real issues on the internet!

A new kind of attack that was found by Mr. Lee & Mr. Louis (well back in 2005) and will be demo'ed soon at upcoming T2 conference in Helsinki.

The tool's name is "sockstress" and is not going to be released since the vendors of affected TCP stacks have not fixed them yet.

If this is true and is released there could be sme real issues for all of the internet.
