+ - LOIC DDoS Attack Tool Goes Mobile to Android->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have become a favorite weapon of hacktivists in the past several years, and especially recently. But while such attacks are typically launched from an army of PCs, researchers have found a new app for Android that ports the infamous low orbit ion cannon (LOIC) tool over to mobile devices.

Besides the new Android version LOIC, the tool has also been ported to JavaScript to perform a denial-of-service directly from the browser. Porting the tool over to Android was made easy by the fact that it was generated using a free online service that creates Android apps with just a URL, HTML code or document file, said security researcher Carlos Castillo."
