    I'm afraid there nothing new here :doubt:. As you will recaal there was an alert lately (for instance at this link: http://seclists.org/lists/fulldisclosure/2004/Jan/0279.html about a few scanners not being able to withstand a bomb attack. This was news, sionce most scanners know the trick and know how to handle it.

    Yes, perhaps I'm a bit alergic to mi2g reports too :D
