DDoS – Distributed Denial of Service

This type of attack uses a Botnet in order to facilitate a DoS attack which has many different sources. All members of the Botnet are instructed by a Botnet Controller to launch an attack at a specific target. Due to the large volume of attack sources, the victim may find it next to impossible to mitigate against the attack. Several high profile organizations across the globe have succumbed to a DDoS attack.
