With all the worms going around...


Pretty good read. I myself haven't been able to try the stuff out yet because I've just been too damn busy so let me know if you do. Good read eitherway.

Gee.....did you read that in the article?

"First, the concept of a TCP session not "letting go" could be really distressing to some TCP stacks and operating systems -it's even possible that they may crash."
