Understanding What is DDOS Attach| Softex Hosting Security

Post by Softex »

DDoS In short Stands for: "Distributed Denial of Service"

DDoS is a type of DOS attack (Denial of Service) where multiple compromised systems(Usually infected with a Trojan and usually called a Zombie Machines) , are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

In simple words, if i want to take down a website and i cannot find any security holes, then i will push it and Flood it with hundreds of thousands of Page requests to make it too easy to respond or even better consume its hosting bandwidth to make sure the target website host blocks the website causing it to Go Down.

Do you want to know how it works ?

The question is "if i am a simple computer hacker/abuser how can i take down the website of large company using my computer and limited internet connection???" , simply i would develop a trojan/Virus and distribute it on as many computers as i can and make it do nothing for 3 months , just infect machines and sit there waiting. When the Preset time of my attack comes (Zero Hour) , All infected Machines (in the same second) will start accessing the Target Website (Target) in the same time , this will cause the Target website to get flooded by request and make it go down (which is Exactly the meaning of Denial of Service Attacks DDOS)
