TCP Reset Injection Detection Utility

  An interesting source, <NNSquad> (Network Neutrality Squad), has released an open source tool (licensed under <LGPL>) to detect TCP reset (RST) packets that may have been injected into a TCP connection by a party other than the endpoints.
  The <NNSquad Network Measurement Agent (NNMA)> tool's available downloads are beta and include a Windows 2000/XP/Vista installer binary and <VC++ 6.0> Windows source code.
  TCP reset injection has been discovered being controversially used by internet service providers, such as <Comcast>, to disrupt torrent and P2P file sharing.
