    Quite true in this case, how long have we been ing TCP? Forever!



    The article doesn't state how easly/hard this is to exploit, any more details?

    That's no light reading :eek: When I'm a little more awake and feel like supplementing my "War and Peace" diet I'll go back and try to get the jest of it! :eek:
