Neutralizing Slowloris attacks with NIO

Most of the time, web attacks rely on perverted use of protocols or pernicious effects of a technical possibility. For example, web servers are implemented to accept both fast and slow clients and treat them equally, but nobody would expect to have at the same time a huge amount of extremely slow clients. If this happened, this would lead the "old-style" server (1 thread for 1 connection) to get frozen.
