Interesting...

I tried this with the following command:

% for i in `seq 1 $(grep processor -c /proc/cpuinfo)`;
do ./unix-socket-dos-exploit; echo "=====$i====";done
Connection OK
Connection OK
=====1====
Connection OK
Connection OK
=====2====
Connection OK
Connection OK
=====3====
Connection OK
Connection OK
=====4====

My system doesn't hang at all.

Am I missing something?

Thanks!
