Denial of service

Last updated on December 23rd, 2020 by Radostin Angelov. Filed under

A denial of service, also known as DoS attack is a type of attack during which the attacker floods the target server or website with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload it and making it unavailable, therefore legitimate requests cannot be fulfilled. A popular variant of this attack is also DDoS, a Distributed Denial of Service during which multiple hosts are used to attack the target instead of one.
