Subject: RE: The impending DDoS storm

Has anyone determined a method for triggering the DOS attack manually?
We've attempted this by changing an infected machine's clock, however it
did not work on our test box.  If anyone has triggered the attack, do
you have a copy of the sniffed data stream?


Have you tried rebooting the infected box?  Apparently, the
date check and decision to DoS or infect others comes early
on in the code and is not rechecked.
