So before you get your panties in a bunch, this was done in a controlled competition environment targeting boards only in the competition and not beyond a board outside the environment. Anyways, I was at the Western Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition this week, and there was a team of end-users designed to generate traffic and noise. One of the members had XRumer and I was shocked at how sophisticated the program is. It's amazing what it can do. Simply drop in a text file with URLs you want to target, compose the message you want, click a button, and BAM. All thirteen student teams competing in the competition had their boards spammed. It was crazy!
