Slowloris is mainly an HTTP Denial of Carrier assault that has effects on threaded servers. It really works like this:
- We begin making a lot of HTTP requests.
- We ship headers periodically (each and every ~15 seconds) to stay the connections open.
- We by no means shut the relationship except the server does so. If the server closes a connection, we create a brand new one stay doing the similar factor.
This exhausts the servers thread pool and the server cannot respond to people.
