Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack

The distributed denial of service is one of the most commonly used DoS attacks. Making the best use of networks (botnets) and connected devices (bots), DDoS attacks can make any network render useless.

DDoS attacks take place by instructing the dots to send huge requests to the target while overwhelming the network. This is where it restricts the legitimate traffics denying normal services.

Since 2020, many crypto exchanges have become victims of successful DDoS attacks. This poses a significant problem among the exchanges where users can’t access their funds or transact until the server is brought back online.
