- DDOS : "Denial of service attack".A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to make an online service unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending/Intrupting the services of its hosting server.
Basically it can be divided into 3 parts :
- Volumes based attacks : UDP floods,ICMP floods &
Spoofed packet flood.
UDP = "User datagram protocol"
ICMP = "Internet control Message protocol"
- Protocol attacks : SYN flood,Fragmented packet attacks ,ping of death smurf Ddos.
SYN = "Synchronize"
- Application layer attacks : GET/POSTS flood &
Attacks that target Apache, Windows and open BSD vulnerabilities.
Let's talk about most common ones used :
UDP Floods : A DDoS attack that floods a target with User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets & makes the server/service to check if that's listening to port, continuesly & later it makes the "destination unreachable ".
PIng of death : Most commonly used by kids/newbies. In this attack the host sends malicious/Malformed pings (in bytes) to a computer/server , from a IP and they are too big in size sometimes that reaches the "Data link layer" (Maximum requests a server can take) & makes the server slow, sometimes The site goes down.
HTTP Flood : somehow the most easy and most dangerous one in this one, the attacker/host sends requests to website by using bot nets IP (Bot IP)
"A massive HTTP flood can have about : 690,000,000 DDoS requests from 180,000 botnets IPs."
"Also it's better to enter credentials in *https website because the "S" In https denotes for "secure" & also tells us that the website have Valid SQL certificates."
READ THIS : PERFORMING DDOS ATTACK CAN IS ILLEGAL AND LEGAL ACTIONS CAN BE TAKEN ACCORDING THE LAW OF THE PARTICULAR COUNTRY.
EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY
I don't know if anyone care or not but I just wanted to find something that can make me get rid of boredom so I make posts like this, you can have a look on previous posts too also ignore grammar mistakes
Nice one Newuser. So they act like they were flooded, or something to delay user?

@AXES usually they continuesly send requests using bot ip and and when the server reaches the maximum number of request then, boom. It stops working
ok, so they flooding and causeing collison.. yeah, hahaha. seen that happen so much from hackers..
sad that they get that desperate.
Newuser, remember they use to do that with EBAY at last sec bidding on some items.. so they know, they got the last low bid? Ebay made a great firewall to stop that kind of behavior

@AXES probably they were script kiddies doing that for some Adrenaline rush
@AXES Blizzard still gets DDossed a lot on major patch days causing servers to lag or come down. Its funny and annoying at the same time.....
for no other reason but to say, they can do it. How sad Janet, just ruin for self gratification of , nothing. Sad.
@AXES yup its amazing that it still happens
