Low Orbit Ion Cannon - An open source network stress tool, written in C#
Based on Praetox's loic project at https://sourceforge.net/projects/loic/. 

================
|| DISCLAIMER ||
================

I, NewEraCracker, am not responsible for how you use this tool.
You cannot blame me if you get caught for attacking servers you don't own.
This tool is released for educational purposes only, and comes with no warranty at all.

===========================
|| HOW TO RUN ON WINDOWS ||
===========================

GET THE BINARIES!

Requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, available at:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=ab99342f-5d1a-413d-8319-81da479ab0d7&displaylang=en

==================================
|| HOW TO RUN ON LINUX / MACOSX ||
==================================

Run debug binaries with mono.
Read the wiki at https://github.com/NewEraCracker/LOIC/wiki/ for updated instructions.

==========================
|| HIVEMIND/HIDDEN MODE ||
==========================

HIVEMIND mode will connect your client to an IRC server so it can be controlled remotely.
Think of this as a voluntary botnet (though do beware that your client can potentially be
made to do naughty things).

Note: It does NOT allow remote administration of your machine, or anything like that; it
is literally just control of loic itself.

If you want to start up in Hivemind mode, run something like this:
 LOIC.exe /hivemind irc.server.address
It will connect to irc://irc.server.adress:6667/loic

You can also specify a port and channel:
 LOIC.exe /hivemind irc.server.address 1234 #secret
It will connect to irc://irc.server.adress:1234/secret

In order to do Hivemind Hidden mode, run something like this:
 LOIC.exe /hidden /hivemind irc.server.address
It will connect to irc://irc.server.adress:6667/loic without any visible GUI.

===============================
|| CONTROLLING LOIC FROM IRC ||
===============================

As an OP, Admin or Owner, set the channel topic or send a message like the following:
!lazor targetip=127.0.0.1 message=test_test port=80 method=tcp wait=false random=true

To start an attack, type:
!lazor start

Or just append "start" to the END of the topic:
!lazor targetip=127.0.0.1 message=test_test port=80 method=tcp wait=false random=true start

To reset loic's options back to its defaults:
!lazor default

To stop an attack:
!lazor stop
and be sure to remove "start" from the END of the topic, if it exists, too.

Take a look at source code for more details.
