These PC’s become agents of a DDoS attack known as zombies. DDoS tools Trinoo TFN, TFN2k Stacheldraht MyDoom DRDoS Attack:  DRDoS Attack “Distributed reflected denial of service attack” Send requests to a large number of computers using spoofed source IP address Only considered a DDoS attack if many hosts send out signals to many subnets Unintentional DDoS Attack:  Unintentional DDoS Attack Usually caused by a sudden spike in popularity “Slashdot effect” or “Digg effect” Packet Flooding :  Packet Flooding Most DDoS schemes involve the consumption of bandwidth or network resources via packet flooding. ICMP Packets UDP Packets TCP Packets TCP SYN Packets Multiple Packet Attacks Latest: DNS Look-ups How to Tell If You Are Under Attack:  How to Tell If You Are Under Attack Unusually slow network performance Unavailability of a particular website Inability to access any website Dramatic increase in the amount of spam you receive in your email account.
