Slowloris and Apache

Postby Rudde » 10. October 2011 18:16

Hello, my webserver i under casual Slowloris attacks and I can't find any fix for it to windows. I find a lot for modules for linux but none for windows, I was wondering how you guys here take care of this problem?

We require your XAMPP version and your Windows Version to provide the correct version support - please read the following Announcements.

The solution for XAMPP is very easy:
XAMPP is created and preconfigured as local development environment not as production environment (and especially not ready for internet access).
I don't know how it is for you, but on my very local development machine the risk of beeing victim of network attacks is very small (exept i use Slowloris by myself).

To learn more about protection against Slowloris, i recommend reading the following @ wikipedia
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Xampp 1.7.3
running at Windows Server 2008 R2 x64

Well I use xampp as a open webserver because IIS faild me, and Slowloris don't work on IIS, but I heard they have released mod's to fix this in apache as well, but I don't seem to find any working :(
