Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a type of cyber attack in which multiple compromised systems, often referred to as a botnet, are used to flood a target system or network with traffic, rendering it inaccessible to legitimate users. These attacks can be launched using various techniques, such as ICMP floods, UDP floods, SYN floods, and HTTP floods.
