Here are my thoughts:
First off you have absolutely NO BUSINESS running exploits on random
ip addys (please don't let this tangent into the old is portscanning
legal vs illegal holy war, fact of the matter is he has tried a
working exploit on a random ip, think if it was you). Secondly I
would suggest if you want to learn to about security why don't you
set up a test network for yourself. Further and finally are you sure
the exploit works? I am betting you didn't code it yourself and
unless you can read code I bet you really don't know much about it,
how it works or if it is broken. Just because the thing compiles
doesn't really mean that it will do what you (assume / expect???) it
HTH and don't attack random ip address' that is not a very neighborly
My first msg to this list !
I wanto improve the security of my linux slackware 7.0 box!
I have an exploit that should work for my ftp service, but when I run
localhost or 127.0.0.1 nothing happens. If I run it on a random IP
probably doesn't have the same service or even linux it acts
/I really should come up with a nifty nick !
