Submission (SL)Hacker finds HTTP protocol flaw everyone knew!->

DGtlRift writes: "Wong Onn Chee "discovered" a flaw with the HTTP protocol involving the POST method and slowly trickling data to server as a DDoS via Agentless BotNet attack that effects every HTTP server in the world.

At work, after doing some major changes to the software project and verifying the integrity of the software in my local development environment, I decided to check in about 80 files into the main repository. This was a good time to check in because another engineer needed to modify a couple of header files I had checked out. The files I was going to check in were c, assember (68k and PPC), header files, and a couple of other prop

Backed up the system lately?
