Ping of death attack
The ping of death attack is one of the oldest network attacks.
The principle of ping of death simply involves creating an IP datagram whose total size exceeds the maximum authorized size (65,536 bytes). When such a packet is sent to a system with a vulnerable TCP/IP stack, it will cause the system to crash.
No recent systems are vulnerable to this type of attack.
