--plug in a desktop computer into itself? my son was telling me about a kid who did that and d-dos'd the thing (or all of them in the group)- not sure if that's what he meant. the topic's come to mind again due to something something regarding online testing.


I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.

A denial of service attack?  

 

Can't imagine that would result.

Infinite recursion. Would open a wormhole into a pocket universe and then proceed to slowly suck in everything around it.

 

I'd stay away from that school. You never know just when those things will hit critical mass and leave a 30 foot crater. Like what happened at that Corvette museum in Florida.  That was someone's phone routed into it's own hotspot.

It happens in Florida all the time. Damned rednecks don't know a computer from a cinderblock.

Slim, i don't know. all i know is a kid "plugged one computer into itself (or others) and it dos'd the school's server. it's bullshit, but it's also hilarious because they should know something like this can be done. these districts want to spend so much money on equipment and staff have no idea how to take care of it. for example, in one of my son's classes, they are supposed to wipe the computers clean once a week or something, because whatthey do in the class is very graphics-intensive. kids are supposed to daily save their work on another format. they run so slowly and he finally looked at the thing and saw they didn't have any memory room to work in. teacher had no idea.

Best guess - didn't happen, just one of those hoaxes or rumours that gets spread around.

In all seriousness - even if a comp had 2 network cards and you hooked them together, little would happen. The software would detect one conflict or another and disable the interfaces until something got fixed.

 

If you tried to do that on a network, say both network cards out to the network, then the network in question would just assign 2 IP addresses. One for each network card. then if you tried to do stuff like DOS your own comp by flooding port 2 with packets from port 1.... I suppose that you could slow down the comp so that it would be unusable.... I don't think there'd be much network effect except for heavy traffic for a while. Meh.

of course that's possible, but knowing these kids in this town, i wouldn't doubt they did it. either way, it's a little excitement in the drudgery that is american schools these days.

On a Unix / Linux machine it would just be internally routed; those packets wouldn't make it to the network cable - I suspect that's true for Windows as well. Similarly you can in principle connect two NICs with a simple ethernet cable - doesn't even have to be a crossover cable these days; switches auto-detect that and I suspect network cards do as well. But once again, not that it makes a practical difference - the network traffic will just get routed from one port to the other, at least conceptually, without actually troubling your length of CAT5 or whatever.
