RE: Type of Attack Vector



Hi, Jono29...

Is your awareness of the attack vector based on an alert generated by an
IDS/IPS/something else? If so, can you indicate which IDS/IPS/whatever
generated that alert, and whether that device/software has any help
information available for that alert type? Sometimes different vendors
have interesting names for rather mundane variations on a known theme.

Cheers

Subject: Type of Attack Vector

Hi List,

I have recently come across a type of attack vector named "Fast Repeat
Ack". Having searched through various sources of information such as
MySDN and MSDN I have been unable to find anything specific to this
vector, although I have found alot of info on the other connection
orientated attacks such as Syn Flood and Half Open Syn.
Any information will be greatly received, and any links to useful
sources appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
