In information security, a DDOS (distributed denial-of-service) attack is a method used by cyber-criminals to make a computer resource (i.e. – website, application, e-mail, voicemail, network) unresponsive to legitimate users. It does so by flooding the target with traffic from remotely-controlled computers.
DDOS attacks can be particularly dangerous not just because of the outages they cause, but also because they perpetrate the infection of networks with Trojans, which allow the attacker to command and control its targets without the user’s knowledge. Over 7,000 DDoS attacks are estimated to be carried out on a daily basis.
DDoS attacks are typically directed at business websites, bank sites, credit card payment gateways and even root name servers.
