The Difference Between a DoS and a DDoS Attack

DoS: a DoS Attack is a Denial of Service
attack- it involves using one computer / Internet connection to flood a
server with packets (TCP / UDP) - The Objective of this attack is to
'overload' the servers bandwidth / other resources, This will cause a
Denial of Service to anyone else that tries to use the server for
whatever reason (HTTP [Website]).etc - hence the name Denial of Service

DDoS: Yes, There IS a difference- a DDoS Attack (or Distributed Denial
of Service Attack) is pretty much the same as a DoS- but the difference
in results is massive; as its name suggests the DDoS
attack is executed using a distributed computing method often referred
to as a 'botnet army', the creation process of which involves infecting
computers with a form of malware that gives the botnet owner access to
the computer somewhat- this cold be anything from simply using the
computers connection to flood to total control of the computer - these
attacks affect the victims computer -> server more than a regular DoS-
because multiple connections are being used against ONE connection,
Think of it like a fight, if there is a 1-on-1 fight; the chance of the
good guy winning is far higher than if he was being beaten up by
severalthousand tough-guys Smile
