PyLoris 2.0 Released

PyLoris is a tool for testing a web server's vulnerability to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. It uses the Slowloris method (http://ha.ckers.org/slowloris); by using all available connections web servers cannot complete valid requests.

The latest version of PyLoris supports SSL sockets, giving the tool HTTPS request capability. Additionally, the inclusion of SocksiPy grants full SOCKS4/SOCKS5 functionality, allowing one to run tests through SSH tunnels and TOR.
