Here is the goal of a Denial of Service (DoS) attack is to make a computer system or network resource unavailable, so that it is not possible for legitimate users to access information or make use of a service. Some examples are Denial of Service attacks to bring down Internet banking services, email services or game servers.
You might also have heard of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. The difference between a DoS attack and a DDoS attack is that a DoS attack originates from a single system, while in a DDoS attack multiple systems attack a single target. It is often the case that a DDoS attack is carried out with a large number of compromised systems, where the owners of these compromised systems do not even know they are taking part in a DDoS attack.
The denial of service (DOS) attack is one of the most powerful attacks used by hackers to harm a company or organization. Dont confuse a DOS attack with DOS, the disc operating system developed by Microsoft. This attack is one of most dangerous cyber attacks. It causes service outages and the loss of millions, depending on the duration of attack.
In past few years, the use of the attack has increased due to the availability of free tools. This tool can be blocked easily by having a good firewall.But a widespread and clever DOS attackcan bypass most of the restrictions. In this post, we will see more about the DOS attack, its variants, and the tools that are used to perform the attack. We will also see how to prevent this attack and how not to be the part of this attack.
Xerosploit is a penetration testing toolkit whose goal is to perform man in the middle attacks for testing purposes. It brings various modules that allow to realise efficient attacks, and also allows to carry out denial of service attacks and port scanning.
UFONet - is a tool designed to launch DDoS attacks against a target, using Open Redirect vectors on third party web applications, like botnet. UFONet runs on many platforms. It requires Python (>2.7.9).
Xerxes is one of the most powerful private dos tools. This tool was used by The Jester to Hits WikiLeaks Site DoS Attack. Xerxes is a C program and therefore this tutorial is strictly for Linux users because I do not know how to run C programs on Windows.
