Thread: Hole in BlackIce

    Hole in BlackIce

    A denial of service condition has been reported in Internet Security Systems's BlackICE Defender, BlackICE Agent and RealSecure Server Sensor,which can be exploited by a remote user. Exploitation is achievable via a ping flood attack.

    Sending a continuous series of ICMP Echo Request (Ping) 10,000 byte packets to a target host, could cause the host to reboot.

    Reportedly, only Windows 2000 and XP hosts are susceptible to this issue.

    If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked. What\'s more, you deserve to be hacked.

    win xp has built in firewall that allows/disallows icmp requests. This will render ping floods useless...
