Fraggle attack

Fraggle attack

Fraggle Attack is a denial-of-service (DoS) attack, it is a variation of Smurf attack where an attacker sends a large amount of UDP traffic to ports 7 (echo) and 19 (chargen) to an IP Broadcast Address, with the intended victim's spoofed source IP address. It works very similar to the Smurf attack in that many computers on the network will respond to this traffic by sending traffic back to the spoofed source IP of the victim, flooding it with traffic.
