DoS stands for “denial of service” and refers to an attack that overwhelms a system with data.
A DoS attack is performed from a single computer and is less common today than DDoS attacks.
Again, DoS stands for “denial of service” and refers to an attack that overwhelms a system with data.
In a DDoS attack, the first "D" stands for distributed and that simply means that many computer across the internet are engaged, sometimes hundreds or thousands at a time.
More often than not, the computers being used in the attack are not knowingly participating but rather are compromised systems from home computers, routers, and even CCTV cameras that are controlled by hackers as part of what's called a "botnet".
Simply put, a botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices that communicate with other similar devices to complete repetitive tasks and objectives. It is a combination of the words robot and network.
A zombie botnet is the group of hacker-controlled computers and/or devices that can be enlisted by the hacker without their owners knowledge.
A computer can be turned into a "bot" through malware on infected websites, through spam file attachments, and sometimes just through known vulnerabilities in operating systems or devices.
