Denial of Service Attack (DDoS)

What is a Denial of Service attack (DoS)?

A Denial of Service attack is a form of cyber attack which overloads a network. This can disrupt services and make a website unavailable to users.

The DoS attack can be caused by a computer virus that’s used to target a particular system.

A Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS), on the other hand, targets a number of computer systems at once.
