Core Internet Technology Is Vulnerable.

AP reports:

The flaw affecting the Internet's “tranmission control protocol,” or TCP, was discovered late last year by a computer researcher in Milwaukee, Paul “Tony” Watson, 36, who said he identified a method to reliably trick personal computers and routers into shutting down electronic conversations by resetting the machines remotely.

Watson plans to give a presentation Thursday that will show how to reset a machine.

Watson predicted that hackers would understand how to begin launching attacks “within five minutes of walking out of that meeting.”
