Unicornscan Author Jack C. Louis Dies in Tragic fire at his home in Sweden

| Brett D. Arion |
A sad time for the security industry. Famed researcher and security genius Jack C. Louis has died in a tragic house fire this past weekend in Sweden. Jack is best known for writing the outstanding scan tool Unicornscan, and his latest tool Sockstress which was tied to research regarding the discovery of an inherent flaw in the TCP/IP protocol. More recently Jack was working as the lead security researcher for Outpost24, but has also worked with ISECOM on the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM). Jack and his work will be sorely missed.....
