How to use your new pingpond DMA port for DDoS mitigation
We’ve seen a lot of news this week about the DDoS attacks that are hitting websites, and one of the main reasons for it is the way the DMA works.
DDoS is a type of network attack, where attackers use a malicious program to overwhelm the system.
This kind of attack is similar to a Trojan horse that has malicious software installed on your computer and then tries to send you messages, usually with an obvious purpose.
In other words, a malicious application is sending you spam.
The problem with this type of attack lies in how it is executed.
In DDoS, attackers send a request to the DSA, the protocol for communication between two servers, and this request is intercepted by a server.
This request then triggers a denial of service attack on the server.
The server can’t stop the attack because the denial of life attack is an attempt to cause the system to shutdown.
Once the server is offline, the attacker can execute more attacks.
DSA is the protocol that connects servers, which means it’s possible to have two or more servers that all connect to a single DSA.
In this way, a network attack can be conducted.
In our next article, we will show you how to use the DPA port for a DDoS attack.
In the meantime, we’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
Do you think DDoS will become more common?
