Ping of Death
This is an attack that sends a larger than expected PING (Packet Internet Gopher). For example, an echo request packet with a packet size greater than 65,507. If the TCP/IP stack on the end machine is badly written, it will cause the machine to crash with a buffer overflow causing a DoS (Denial of Service) or in some instances, the ability to log onto the system.
