Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack

    A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a malicious cyberattack in which an attacker seeks to make targeted services or networks unavailable by flooding them with requests from multiple devices, thereby preventing legitimate users from accessing the target. If DDoS attacks are left unmitigated, large amounts of incoming data can overload a service network, causing legitimate requests to bounce or time-out.
