Hi,

Ok so first of all, the ping usually fills up the payload taking from 0 to 255 bytes and then loops again. so when the payload will be less than 8 bytes, you will logically not get any loops that will given this time and the byte will automatically be altered. For example, the byte that you will have next will become a 0x08 and will continue to change this way.
