Re: How to bypass firewalls

Not an expert on this topic but I know a common way to do so by taking advantage of protocols behaviour and stateful 
inspection design.

So let's say that the firewall has stateful inspection for ftp and IRC protocols, you can inject ftp PORT commands 
during ftp sessions to fool the firewall into thinking that it is an IRC transaction and since this protocol uses peer 
to peer connections the firewall will automatically open any port needed by the IRC server(attacker) to the chat client 

Although this flaw has been patched by Netfilter team, definitely constitutes a sexy way to bypass firewalls.

Google "phrack breaking through a firewall".
