Reactive Network Solutions announced that it will offer the first free software for detecting cyber attacks caused by terrorists and malicious hackers. According to the company, its FloodGuard Alert software can detect a variety of attacks, including distributed denial of service (DDoS), distributed reflective denial of service (DRDoS), Worm propagation, and other flooding attacks that can overwhelm networks and shut down websites. The software runs on x86-based computers running Linux, and its user interface can be launched on remote Linux and Win32 clients, both from within and across firewalls.
