DDoS Attack: What is it and how to stay protected against it?

October 05, 2019 / Cyware

DDoS attack aims at bringing services down by bombarding them with so much traffic that their services and infrastructure are unable to handle it. In a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, multiple compromised systems are used to target a server with a huge volume of traffic. Typically, a botnet formed of compromised computers sends huge traffic to a targeted server which causes unstable connections and service outages as the service could not handle all the requests. Volume-based attacks - Volume-based attacks include UDP floods, ICMP floods, and other spoofed-packet floods. This type of attack is measured in bits per second (Bps).
