In this article we are going to know about what is DDOS attacks, its types and how to prevent ddos attacks .
As I already said on the sub heading, DDOS is the short form of Distributed Denial Of Service. So Distributed Denial Of Service is generally a type of DOS attack. Where multiple systems are used to target a single system. Those systems can be infected with trojans or any other harmful malware, Which can cause serious damage to the targeted system. So This causes a Denial of Service Attack (DOS).
A Denial Of Service attack is an attempt which is made to make a resource which can be a machine or network resource unavailable for the users who uses it. Many websites gets affected with this type of attacks. But don’t worry we are also going to learn about the protection or mitigation of the DOS attacks which are caused by Distributed Denial Of Service(DDOS) attack. By which you can protect against ddos.
Distributed Denial Of Service and Denial of Service attacks are not similar to each other. Their attacking process is different. In DOS attack, it uses one computer and one internet connection to flood a targeted system or resource. But in case of DDOS, as I said before it uses multiple infected computers and internet connections to attack the targeted resource.
Just take an example of a website. Which is made on a hosting, which can handle less traffic. Now a hacker will send more than enough requests to the website with different Trojans. What will happen is the website won’t be able to take that much requests and the website will go dead. So protection from DDOS attacks is important.
Depending upon the connection we can divide DDOS attacks into two different categories..
According to the network infrastructure we can divide a DDOS attack in three different categories..
Anti DDOS steps:
So these are some options you can follow in order to prevent, protect or mitigation of DDOS attacks. If you want to modify something then please comment. Thank you so so much.
And remember I will keep it updated…
