Could somebody tell me what program this is?
EDIT: It's a DDoS tool
It's LOIC DDoS Analysis and Detection
Is the program safe to use?
Don't know, Just ran the image search and found the name of the application.
who do you want to DOS?
and using what? your home PC? .....
they dont work you need a bot net for ddos
Exactly. Or 1000 PCs using that "program".
But it would be cheaper to rent a botnet for few hours than build your own without any ressources & technical knowledge.
Forget those apps once and for all.
I tested it out on an old blog and it appeared to have took the blog down but then the program was running my internet connection down very low and I had to stop it.
That's the point of it. It's used for Denial of Service attacks. The simplest form of a DoS is bombarding the address with bad requests so that legitimate requests cannot get through, denying a legitimate user the service. It makes sense that the program would utilize as much of your bandwidth as possible.
I wouldn't make a habit of doing it from your home connection. I'm pretty sure it's illegal in the UK (Prob USA too).
no the blog just banned your ip so it only looked offline to you
easy way to get a bot network going is to use angry ip scanner and dictionary file i know a guy who knows a guy that says if you scan a poor country's looking for unsecure systems you will them
See details here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_Orbit_Ion_Cannon its a famous piece of software, and its safe.
