Squid has the ability to proxy and cache FTP transactions, but only if you are pointing to...

Slowloris (and any type of DoS with a similar intention) is a tool designed to hold up all the available connections on an Apache server without having a massive network to DoS the host. The concept is best described by the Slowloris developer -- In considering the ramifications of a slow denial of service attack against particular services, rather than flooding networks, a concept emerged that would allow a single machine to take down another machine's web server with minimal bandwidth...
