which binds to a selected set of TCP and/or UDP ports
. Connections to these ports receive an expected response
(a full handshake
, and an empty packet
), at which point the connection is closed.
portchaffer normally uses /etc/services as its binding list; thus, portchaffer should be the last network application to start.
UDP responses are rate limited to one response per port per second, to prevent bounce attacks.
There is no man page. There is no support. The purpose of portchaffer is to distract script kiddies from other targets by presenting them a distracting target.
