It was almost noon, and no one had managed to have much effect on the target Web server in Jake's "hands on" hacking class. There had been a couple of minor interruptions, but nothing that could really be classified as a denial of service. The instructor had warned them at the beginning that this was not meant to be a pushover exercise; it was becoming apparent to the students that he wasn't kidding. Jake had tried most of the tricks he knew, with no success: smurf, ping of death, echo-chargen, and teardrop, among others. He leaned back in his chair and closed his eyes. It was time to think outside the box.
