A hacker under the alias
Th3j35t3r claims he created an application named
XerXes which enables to perform DDoS attacks without using
zombie pc's and with no collateral damage to intermediary nodes and no long term damage to target.
See for live DDoS attack recorded on video: >> here <<
This video just worries me (because the internet might be not save), on the other hand I think it's fake because how can anyone launch an DDoS attack (Th3j35ter claimed he was responsible for the attack on wikileaks' website) with 10 gigabit / second from a single pc? And that while Wikileaks is using load-balancers on 3 different ip's?
Does anyone know if this is for real? If it's real, how does it work? And how can websites protect itself from this?
