Hi dk, thanks for the input :-) I already had the list, but thanks anyways. You are 
quite correct of course that this type of thing should be included in a pentest. But 
that is just in my opinion. Though this type of attack has a limited time window it is 
still quite effective for obvious reasons.

Hello all, do any of you bother using obfuscated eggs during a pentest? I ask here for

elude an IDS signature.   
Hi don, 
        I realize this message is 23 days after your post, and not fully OT; But it  
came to mind when you mentioned non-\x00 codes. It's a list from an old snort  
preprocessor... Not sure if they moved this into the core project or not, been  
a while since I've ran a snort NIDS.  Anyway, it has been handy before, and  
I've forgotten where I got it from, 'prolly old snort code that you have  
already, but if not... 
Oh, BTW. Though I don't pentest professionally, it would seem logical to run  
tests that are similar to that which /may/ happen in the field. non-\x00 is  
used there, so why not in a p-test? Seems like it would increase the quality  
of work provided with little cost on your end up front.
