Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks

  •  In DDoS attacks, malware first creates network of bots — called botnet and then uses botnet to ping single server beyond its capacity at same time.
  • As number of pings are far beyond server’s capacity, server crashes and denies service to its consumers.
  • Malwares like Saposhi, Reaper and Mirai are primarily are used for DDoS attacks.
  • For example, if large botnet attacks server of fleet cab provider, its server will crash, and scores of consumers will be unable to avail of its services, causing chaos in daily commuting as well as massive losses to the company.
