New version of GoldenEye WebServer DoS tool released

After the hackers 2 hackers conference talk last year, some people contacted me about known Python performance issues regarding the use of threads related to the GIL.

Indeed the threading wasn’t performing well due the nature of GIL so I’ve rewritten the code to support Python’s multiprocessing module. It’s a tad faster but I haven’t tested it exhaustively so if you feel the inner-beta-tester in you, let me know!

The download is available as always at the github project page at https://github.com/jseidl/GoldenEye and you can read more about the tool at the project page at this blog.

Please test it (ON YOUR OWN RESOURCES!!) and let me know your thoughts!
