Exclamation Serious security flaw in TCP exposed.

Full details here:

http://www.uniras.gov.uk/vuls/2004/236929/index.htm

"until recently it was believed that a successful denial of service attack was not achievable in practice."

"The discoverer of the practicability of the RST attack was Paul A. Watson, who describes his research in his paper “Slipping In The Window: TCP Reset Attacks”, presented at the CanSecWest 2004 conference."
