The Zapatista Tactical FloodNet is a Java Applet that assists in the execution of virtual sit-ins by automatically reloading the targeted website several times every minute. Additionally, it allows for users to post statements to the site by sending them to the server log.
FloodNet was created by the Electronic Disturbance Theatre members Carmin Karasic and Brett Stalbaum. This activist group executed FloodNet in April and December 1998 on Mexican and American government sites, respectively.
The FloodNet program will only cause desired effect when thousands of users are logged in simultaneously, where all their browsers will automatically reload targeted website and cause desired effect. Desired effect being to cause so much traffic inside the server that any other user attempting to log in will not be able to view the website.
