NetCut is a network management application or tool created by Ark in 2001. Arcai itself is a community that has been actively developing various types of applications since 1999. This application was launched by Arcai by exploiting the weakness of the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP).

NetCut is actually a useful application. Using NetCut, you can manage your internet network. This application can be used to limit and even interrupt the internet connection of a computer or smartphone in the network.
