XMAS trees

Nope I’ve not gone mad and started talking about Christmas two months late/ten months early!

Been reading up on different TCP scanning methods and the XMAS tree scan is one method. Found lots of info at Security Focus including this article on Low Level Enumeration with TCP/IP.

Why am I telling the World that I’m such a geek?!! Found a quote that made me smile:

‘…the system’s tcp/ip implementation MUST correspond with RFC standard 793. As such, this method will not work against any current version of Microsoft Windows.’ RFC 793 for the uninitiated is the TCP standard!!!

Spent the weekend servicing snow boards. Getting excited for the trip to Meribel. Two weeks and counting…
