Point and Click DDoS Attacks

Seems like the Internet's bad guys have automated all their attacks these days. A good friend of mine pointed me to a blog post by security blogger and anti-spyware ninja Chris Boyd -- a.k.a "Paperghost" -- about adware from Zango serving up pornography to a targeted teen audience.

A screenshot of the point-and-click DDoS page.

The first screenshot in Boyd's post includes the Web address of a site that delivers said treachery, and if you scour some of pages at that site you might come across one that appears designed to let cyber criminals conduct Web site-crippling denial-of-service attacks with the click of a mouse.

Hmm... Wonder what would happen if we put the Web address of that site into the "DDoS target site:" field? Not that I'm advocating that or anything, mind you; that would be illegal.
