Hyenae 0.26-1 released!

The first public version (0.26-1) of Hyenae has been released today. Hyenae is a highly flexible and platform independent network packet generator. It allows you to reproduce low level ethernet attack scenarios (such as MITM, DoS and DDoS) to reveal the potential security vulnerabilities of your network. Besides smart wildcard-based address randomization and a highly customizable packet generation control, Hyenae comes with a clusterable remote daemon for setting up distributed attack networks. Besides the actual platform independend source code, there are also binary installation packages for Windows and Mac OS X available. Although Hyenae has reached a nearly stable development status, it is still in its beta phase and we need your feedback to weed out the last remaining bugs. If you have suggestions, questions or feature requests, you can get in touch by visiting our project page on SourceForge.net.
