What is DDoS?

The Distributed Denial of Service, or better known as DDoS, is one of the most destructive online threats to date and each of its attack can last between 24.5 to 34.5 hours (source: Prolexic). Depending on the volume of the attack, financial losses caused by DDoS can range from as little as RM30,000 per hour to a whopping RM300,000 per hour (source: Neustar DDoS Survey 2012).

A DDoS attack occurs when the targeted website or application is flooded with a large volume of incoming requests from malicious botnets. This process goes on until the targeted system uses up all its resources to process the fake request and causes the system to deny its original service to legitimate users. The two DDoS attacks are:

  • Volumetric attack – it overloads the target by saturating the target’s bandwidth. These volumetric attacks targets HTTP, HTTPS, UDP, ICMP and SYN flooding.
  • Application layer attack – it overloads the target by exploiting zero days weaknesses or weaknesses inherent in the application.
