Hello and Welcome to INDIAN TECH GAMER.

Today in this article we will be discussing DOS ATTACK. We will cover almost everything related to DOS ATTACK its definition, usage with an example which we all have seen in 2015.

While doing my research on this topic I came across many articles but none of them fulfilled my curiosity, moreover, those articles were not easy enough for a non-technical person to understand even the Wikipedia article baffled me so I decided to put those articles aside and explain it you in a simple way with a real life example. So without wasting much time let’s get started.

DOS stands for Denial Of Service. From the name, it is very clear that it is used to deny someone of some service. It is a type of attack that hackers use to shut down a website. When you visit any website you knowingly or unknowingly download data from it. Every website has its limit(BANDWIDTH) which it can give to the users when they visit it. When the limit exceeds the server is not able to bear the load and it shuts down. It happens due to request over flooding.

REAL LIFE EXPLANATION

Suppose you can carry 5 kg of load at a time with all your efficiency what if you are forced to carry to 7 kg or 8 kg you will slow down or probably sit down. Same happens with the website.

YOUR ABILITY TO CARRY LOAD = BANDWIDTH OF WEBSITE

YOUR EXTRA LOAD = REQUEST OVER FLOODING ON THE WEBSITE

Let’s recall what happened in 2015 when the announcement of FREEDOM 251 was made everyone started booking it online through its website. The number of customers was so much that request exceeded the bandwidth and unknowingly dos attack was performed on the website.
