I’m just going to leave this here…

It’s a little something that I put together for today. Seems appropriate…

Please let me know what you think it does.

#!/usr/bin/env python3
# this python script MUST be run as root

# also, once this is running, it is necessary to run the
# following iptables command designating the appropriate device:
# iptables -A OUTPUT -o <device> -j NFQUEUE --queue-num 3514

from scapy.all import *
from netfilterqueue import NetfilterQueue

def doIt(packet):
	scapypkt = IP(packet.get_payload())
	scapypkt[IP].flags |= 4
	del scapypkt[IP].chksum

# bind the callback function to the queue
nfqueue = NetfilterQueue()
nfqueue.bind(3514, doIt)

except KeyboardInterrupt:

P.S.: It’s probably NOT the best idea to actually do this for all of your network traffic. I tested it by adding -p ICMP to the iptables command, and it actually works and does a fine job… That being said, I take NO responsibility.

P.P.S.: I finally gave into temptation and I’ve been running it on all traffic for quite a while now. I even pushed this update to the site just now with it running. It’s working like a charm - color me impressed.
