Steps for performing DDoS Attack
- An attacker writes a script which automatically sends PING request to the target network. To carry out a DDoS attack , Zombie ( Infected computers which are under attackers’s control ) are required
- An attacker tries to infect the computers using malicious scripts like viruses and turn them into Zombies . An attacker requires thousand of Zombies in order to perform a successful DDoS Attack
- Attacker sets the Zombie to send PING requests to the targeted network and at the same time thousand of zombies sends the PING requests to the target network They continue to attacker disarms them or they get disinfected .
- Due to high traffic , the target is not able to pick up too much load and hence got crashed
