Looking for Definition of DDOS or what DDOS stands for?
A distributed denial-of-service attack is a malicious effort to interrupt regular traffic by flooding the target or its surrounding networks with a torrent of Internet traffic from a targeted server, service, or network.
Through using several compromised data systems as sources of attack traffic, DDoS attacks achieve performance. Computers and other networked infrastructure such as IoT modules may be used in Abused Computers.
A DDoS attack at a high level is like a sudden traffic jam that obstructs the highway, stopping regular traffic from reaching its destination.
