Wondering what DDos is? Today we will tell you about this attack that slows down our systems. You will find answers to why and how-to questions. If your system is slowing down sometimes even though you do not understand the reason, it may be the reasons explained here. Click to see the top 10 booter list.
What is its purpose? How does it work
Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) is a type of attack. The purpose of this attack is to slow down your access to network systems. Sometimes it is blocking your access to some systems, websites, and applications. There is a load your network can handle. Most of the time, IP Booter attacks are carried out by sending a larger payload than this payload to this network.
What are the steps to make it happen?
- Attacker sets the source IP address of the request to the DNS resolver as the destination IP address
- For the sent request to be large, arguments such as “ANY” are used and DNS resolvers that forward them are detected. These requests are made with UDP packets.
- The attacker creates a UDP package using the botnet. It makes requests to DNS resolvers with UDP packets.
- Against the sent request, DNS resolvers respond to the IP address of the target.
- Although the destination does not send requests, it receives a response from the DNS resolvers.
- The incoming request is rejected because it is overloaded and bulky, slowing down the network.
Traffic is generated on your network, similar to how many vehicles generate traffic on the road. Therefore, although your internet is fast on some sites, you do your transactions very slowly.
The target is exposed to answers that are not known where it came from. The system automatically responds to the request in large sizes because the incoming request is prepared for this.
