inundator – Multi-threaded IDS false positive generator
root@kali:~# inundator -h

inundator - fills ids/ips/waf logs with false positives to obfuscate an attack.
Syntax: /usr/bin/inundator [options] <target>


    -a, --auth          Credentials for SOCKS proxy in user:pass format.
                        Default: undef

    -d, --delay         Delay in microseconds (millionths of a second) after
            sending an attack.
                        Default: 0mus since we default to tor, and tor is slow.

            Default: threads are used.

    -p, --proxy         Define the SOCKS proxy to use for attacks in host:port
                        format. The use of a SOCKS proxy is mandatory for rather

                        Default: localhost:9050 (tor)

    -r, --rules         Path to directory containing Snort rules files.
