Internet Security Systems Security Alert
"Stick"- A Potential Denial of Service Against IDS Systems
ISS X-Force has been researching a new attack tool that can be used to launch a stress test against many popular intrusion detection systems (IDS). The new tool, dubbed "Stick" by its creators, has been reported to reduce performance, and/or deny service to many commercial IDS products. Stick has been reported to direct thousands of overt attacks at IDS systems. The additional processing required by IDS systems to handle the new load causes a Denial of Service (DoS) to manifest.
