what is it ddos attack in .ru server :)



Authorwhat is it ddos attack in .ru server :)
A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person or people to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely. Perpetrators of DoS attacks typically target sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks, credit card payment gateways, and even root nameservers. The term is generally used with regards to computer networks, but is not limited to this field; for example, it is also used in reference to CPU resource management.[1]

One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the IAB's Internet proper use policy, and also violate the acceptable use policies of virtually all Internet service providers. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations.
We're lagging pretty bad here too ^^
it lasts very long, that is suspicious ..
would not like to DDoS attack suffered in a bad consequence (
My question is how/where do you draws the line between ddos, script users, and regular intended users? :)

Each type of traffic potentially results in the same outcome. :)

For regular intended users, requests to server are demanded randomly, with random time in between.
For script users, requests to server are demanded regularly every certain interval of time.
For ddos, requests to server are demanded *continuously* (no time in between). The server is overflowed with (fake) requests which has to process. Many of the real requests are delayed, or lost.

Easily blocked by standard security setting or built-in security features. This is why ddos is rare. Regular ddos are very easy to defend against.
