What is a DDoS attack?
A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is characterized by an explicit attempt by attackers to prevent legitimate users of a service from using that service.
explicit attempt by attackers to prevent legitimate users of a service from using that service.
Examples include attempts to:
- “Flood” a network, thereby preventing legitimate network traffic attempts;
- Disrupt connections between two machines, thereby preventing access to a service;
- Prevent a particular individual from accessing a service; or
- Disrupt service to a specific system or person.
In a Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS), the attacking computers are often personal computers with broadband connections to the Internet that have been compromised by viruses or Trojan horses programs. These allow the perpetrator to remotely control machines to direct the attack, and such an array of computers is called a botnet. With enough such slave or zombie hosts, the services of even the largest and most well-connected websites can be disrupted.
The result of a DDoS attack is that the target is not able anymore to maintain efficient communications and connectivity which ultimately impact business operations.
Who are the attackers?
- Organized crimes, for extortion for instance. DDoS attacks are very profitable for those who launch them: easy and cheap to launch… with big impacts
- Politics: we’ve seen DDoS attacks sent to countries to knock them out of the internet
- Hacktivism: Mega upload closure triggered attacks by Anonymous

For years, the number and size of DDoS attacks keep increasing and their intensity is always higher:
+50% in a year
55% of victims
of DDoS attacks were also victims of theft: attackers stole funds, customer data and intellectual property.
Being protected against such attacks is now a MUST DO for operators, ISPs or Content providers.
