A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) is a type of cyberattack that seeks to permanently disrupt a host that is connected to a network in order to prevent its intended users from using a computer or network resource. Denial of service is typically accomplished by sending an excessive amount of requests to the resource or machine that is being targeted in order to overwhelm systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being completed. A distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) floods the victim with incoming traffic from a variety of different sources. Because there are so many potential sources, it is necessary to use more sophisticated mitigation strategies to stop this form of assault. A DoS or DDoS attack is comparable to a crowd of people blocking a store’s entrance, making it impossible for legitimate customers to enter and interfering with business. DoS attacks commonly target well-known web servers, such as banks or credit card payment processors, as well as websites or services hosted on those servers. These assaults could be carried out for revenge, blackmail, or hacktivism.
More information of DDoS attacks
DDoS attacks have risen tremendously in recent years, rendering businesses mostly useless. AWS (Amazon Web Services) was the victim of a DDoS attack in February 2020 that was so sophisticated that it kept AWS’s incident response teams busy for many days while also having an effect on customers all around the world. In February 2021, a DDoS attack on the EXMO cryptocurrency exchange rendered it inaccessible for almost five hours. Recent DDoS attacks against Australia were substantial, ongoing, and state-sponsored. Belgium was a victim of a DDoS attack that targeted its institutions of higher learning, police force, and government. Tens of thousands of effective DDoS assaults per day go unreported and unidentified. These are, in fact, the most effective and costly attacks. IT specialists with knowledge of mitigation are in high demand due to the anticipated development of DDoS.
