DOS testing

This is an article on DOS testing in Ethical hacking Tips.
Ever wonder how you can perform a DOS (denial of service) that doesnt require any fancy code or what not? Well, here it is. You dont really have to learn any coding language to understand this, pretty much just copy and paste.

Perform DOS :surprised
  1. Open up notepad. Type in (dont include quotes unless I say so)(I am a command prompt junkie :pleased: ) "ping -t". Change to whatever site you want to DOS.
  2. Save the file as "DOS.BAT".
  3. Run the file to test that it works. If you see the program pinging, like below, only on and on, than the program works.
  4. Make that a ghost EXE using the tool bat_to_exe from this site:
    Make sure you check the box ghost app at the bottom
  5. Open up notepad again. Type in the following:
    cd C:\windows\system32
    attrib ping +h /s /d
  6. Save that as Ping.bat. This is assuming your primary drive is the drive C:. You may want to leave this a BAT file for that reason.
  7. Put the DOS.exe and the Ping.bat into the same directory. You may want to create a new folder.
  8. Get that folder onto the vics computer or put it onto a usb and run from that on the vics comp. When done, run the ping.bat file. Logoff. WARNING: this may make explorer not start or start slowly, which is the reason for running on a vics computer.
  9. Run the ping.bat on a lot of computers, this will make the traffic for the site really slow or will run a DOS. Have fun!
    ps this is the really hard way of doing it. You might want to get some software.

Thanks for the post. I just want to ask when are we going to use the Denial of service? What is Denial of Service for?

This type of flood is available only for PC`s with hi internet speed not for the normal pc`s who have a speed about 6-10Mb/s . For unix systems is easyer because i know alot of perl programs used to flood, the problem in linux is that you have a slower pc you can get a nice system crash .. something like a kill -9 -1
