Build Status codecov dependency status

loraxe is a multi-threaded, low-bandwidth HTTP DOS tool that handles connections and sockets in parallel. Written with 100% Safe Rust

🎁 Features

  • Fully Configurable CLI options via structopt
  • Colored logs, via pretty_env_logger (set RUST_LOG for more verbose logging)
  • Sockets are handled in parallel via rayon
  • Low-bandwidth usage
  • Built in DNS
  • SSL (Coming Soon)

πŸ–§ DOS Modes

  • Slow HTTP (Slowloris): Holds connections open by slowly completing the http request after sending a complete header.
  • Slow POST: Sends a POST request with a content length of 1m and then sends random data at a rate of 1 byte / .
  • [WIP] Slow READ: Requests a file larger than a servers given send buffer (~65Kb - 124Kb) and then reads the result at a user defined rate.
  • UDP Flood mode: Sends a UDP packet to all ports on a given host. If the port is closed the host must respond with an error saying ICMP error packet. Spamming UDP connections on closed ports can cripple some (as reddit user /u/UndeniablyRexer pointed out) machines very quickly.

πŸ“¦ Installation

The installation of lor-axe is easy if you have cargo installed.

Build from source:

git clone
cd lor-axe
cargo install --path .

cargo install loraxe
loraxe --help

loraxe -p 8080 -s 200

# Start a HTTP POST attack on with 150 concurrent connections
loraxe --post

# Start a Slow READ attack on with 150 concurrent connections and a read buffer of 8 bytes
loraxe --read -b 8

# Start a UDP flood attack on with 150 concurrent connections.
