BREAKING!!!!!BIZNERATI MESSAGE FOR YOU:[WATCH]:
What's a DDOS Attack?A DDOS Attack is in which a multitude of compromised system attack a single target,thereby causing denial of normal service of the target.The flood of incoming messages to the target essrntially forces the target subject to shut down.This type of attack is form of online strike i can comfortably say.
Remember when there was a DDOS attacks on wordpress sites?Here is the link in case you missed IT .DDOS (Distrubuted Denial Of service) attacks can result in Heavy losses,especially if they’re launched against the website of a company that operates under online service for business operations. However, as far as hacktivist attacks are concerned, I don’t know of any operation relying on DDOS attacks that has made a difference, one that has influenced political or business decisions.
For instance, a few years ago, Anonymous hackers launched a massive DDOS attack against PayPal after the company decided to stop processing donations to WikiLeaks. But paypal did not change its
stand on the issue.
Then there was the mega upload ddos attack.DDOS attacks were launched but mega upload site was never brought up.
Should DDOS attacks be considered legal or no?In my own view,i think These types of attacks should be
treated as legal as they are a form of
protesting against justices just like ‘occupy’protest.
Picture this,a business company is acting unfairly to its customers,legal means have been used to deal
with the issue but the business company is not able to stoop low to the suggestions being made.What do you do?A ddos attack is
launched and after that the business will have changed its way of operating.Feels like blackmail?From the company's perspective.There have been massive ddos attacks in the recent past.Remember the wordpress ddos attack?
Over 160000websites were held .Another massive campaign that relied on DDOS attacks was the one launched against several US government and anti-piracy
outfits after the shutdown of
Megaupload in January 2012. The sites of the
US Department of Justice, the FBI,
the White House, HADOPI, RIAA, MPAA, the Belgian Anti-Piracy Federation, and the Warner Music Group’s websites were shut
down. While this was one of the biggest DDOS attack operations launched by hacktivists,no one said “OK, let’s restore Megaupload
because people are unhappy.”
Shortly after the Megaupload DDOS attacks,members of the Anonymous movement submitted a petition to the White House asking the Obama administration to make ddos attacks legal.But the obama administration would hear none of
that.However,whats peculiar is the aftermath of ddos attacks?There is always no change.Its time ddos be taken seriously and be recognised if its done on a right purpose not a
