A DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) is an attack that focuses on making the website unavailable to its legitimate users. DDoS attacks can produce service interruptions, introduce large response delays, and cause various business losses.
Denial-of-Service Attacks result in two ways —they either flood services or crash services. Attackers execute DDoS through computers and smart devices. Given this, it’s common for attackers to make use of IoT devices that are internet-accessible. IoT devices refers to any electronic that can connect to the internet and transmit data, such as toys, smart TVs, and monitors of any kind.
