Tribal Flood Network and TFN2K, Stacheldraht) combine two modes, using the Internet to install attack software on multiple unwitting intermediary systems ("zombies"), from which simultaneous DoS attacks can be launched on target systems without requiring penetrations.
The software products used to execute these types of attacks are Tribe FloodNet 2K (TFN2K is an upgraded version of the previous single-point DOS software) and Trinoo.
The NIPC has released a program to help companies detect TFN2K and Trinoo so that they can be removed; however, the program only works on Solaris-based systems.
