I'm testing a newly purchased VPS for DDoS vulnerability using hping3.
If I do not use --flood, everything goes fine and I see close to 0% packet loss every time. But If I do use --flood, then the packet loss is always 100%. Is this normal?
I think that hping3 is not waiting for enough time to receive the ACK and is just flooding the VPS with SYN requests. Could this be the case or are the SYN requests not being sent at all?
