Low Bandwidth DoS Tool – Python script

Slowloris is basically an HTTP Denial of Service attack that affects threaded servers. It works like this:

  1. We start making lots of HTTP requests.
  2. We send headers periodically (every ~15 seconds) to keep the connections open.
  3. We never close the connection unless the server does so. If the server closes a connection, we create a new one keep doing the same thing.

This exhausts the servers thread pool and the server can’t reply to other people.

How to install and run?

You can clone the git repo or install using pip. Here’s how you run it.

  • sudo pip3 install slowloris
  • slowloris example.com

That’s all it takes to install and run slowloris.py.

If you want to clone using git instead of pip, here’s how you do it.

  • git clone https://github.com/gkbrk/slowloris.git
  • cd slowloris
  • python3 slowloris.py example.com

SOCKS5 proxy support

However, if you plan on using the-xoption in order to use a SOCKS5 proxy for connecting instead of a direct connection over your IP address, you will need to install thePySockslibrary (or any other implementation of thesockslibrary) as well.PySocksis a fork fromSocksiPyby GitHub user @Anorov and can easily be installed by addingPySocksto thepipcommand above or running it again like so:

  • sudo pip3 install PySocks

You can then use the-xoption to activate SOCKS5 support and the--proxy-hostand--proxy-portoption to specify the SOCKS5 proxy host and its port, if they are different from the standard127.0.0.1:8080.

Configuration options

It is possible to modify the behaviour of slowloris with command-line arguments.
