DDoS

Remember Shaun of the Dead(2004)?


Short for Distributed Denial of Service attack.
If you level up Denial of Service attack (DoS), you'll end up with this.
It's an type of bombard used only on the internet, and many cyber terrorists use this.

DDoS is performed when loads and loads of computers binormally log into one web server,
causing it's traffic and the CPU's to overload.
In other words,it's A PACK FULL OF ZERGLINGS or ZOMBIES AT YOUR DOORSTEP, yo.

DDoS can be seperated into many types from one user F5 bombing a site(well in this case this could be just DoS) to ordering multiple types of computers to F5 bomb the same site.

One of the most advanced types is the Zombie type.
Now these babies causes lots and lots of computers to their bidding(like a zombie) by using some malware. If you're not careful, your PC might even be one!(remember, it's not working by it's own will. which fits perfectly with the word zombie) so it is advised you people go and find some good vaccine and clean your PC often.

But remember, it is NOT advised and BANNED in countries.
Although the overmind of the zombie PCs is hard to catch(yes. hard. Not impossible) the police or the Interpol can and will find the one responsible for the DDoS.

Well, they might. Unless it's an international crime, which would screw things up a bit more

  2. Someone visited a questionable website on my computer (sounds like fortune.com) and now my computer is really slow. I run AVG and SpyBot, but neither can find anything weird. What is good software to determine if your computer is a zombie, or other problem?

  3. Francis Caron// thanks! i planned this blog to get people to understand a bit more..
    It's not by far professional but i want people who didn't care or didn't know
    to have a taste of the meaning of the words i'm posting

    Lisa // well first try to use firewall. Disk defragment also would work..
    Usually zombies would'nt take that much of your performance (as far as i know... i could be totally wrong of course)
    and it would be highly unlikely that your computer is a victim of a DDoS attack ->hackers usually attack servers.

  7. DDos can be an annoyance when you're trying to use a server that is getting attacked, but can anything be damaged by it?
