Please do not create the same thread over and over again in the wrong forum.

Also I guess you should have such threads on some military forums and not here

They say he used normal hacking tools found on the Internet but he has the know how of how to utilise those tools in a masterful way. He also have a very very good understanding of the Internet and its protocols. That guy is clever.

Well, you can't port scan a target computer without a port scanner, you can't sniff packets without a proper sniffer, you can't crack passwords without a password cracker, you can't break WEP keys without a wireless password cracker like Aircrack-ng, you can't inject packets into wireless networks (Like deauth attack) without Aireplay-ng, you can't scan for certain SQL or other vulnerabilities on websites and target computers without a proper vulnerability scanner, you can't crash a server without a proper flooder (if you have linux you can use the ping -f command). It's easier to spoof yourself using utilities, you can get more info of the target by using nmap's x-mas tree scan. Need I say more?
