Hi @SomeSupport,

BitTorrent's DHT is exploitable for large scale DoS attacks,
see http://thehackernews...dos-attack.html

Should eMule's code be tested to verify it doesn't support suck an exploit?

The KAD protocol in eMule was already written with such attacks in mind and amplification attacks should not be possible, due to several safe guards (three-way-handshake, ip based floodprotection and so on)
