LOIC - the Low Orbit Ion Cannon

LOIC is an open source network attack application, written in C#. LOIC was
initially developed by Praetox Technologies, but later it was released into the
public domain

LOIC performs a denial-of-service (DoS) attack (or when used by multiple
individuals, a DDoS attack) on a target site by flooding the server with TCP
packets, UDP packets, or HTTP requests with the intention of disrupting the
service of a particular host. People have used LOIC to join voluntary botnets.

This SlackBuild simply builds a package from the binaries included in the
source archive. Alternatively, you may opt to recompile by passing
MONODEVELOP=yes to the script. In this case monodevelop would be needed.

In any case, you still need mono to run loic:

  mono /opt/loic/LOIC.exe

A handy script /usr/bin/loic and a basic desktop integration file have been
included for ease of use.

us if you use this tool to attack servers you don't own and get caught. This
script is released for educational purposes only.
