Cybercrime costs billions of loss every year. Unfortunately, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a plague that targets all kinds of victims: profit and non-profit organizations, international ventures, new entrepreneurships, and more. Your business can be the target. One day, you just experience traffic loads with weird behavior. All your online services (website, email, etc.) work so slow or get totally stopped and inaccessible. The nightmare of a DDoS attack gets real. Criminals are taking your business down.
Far in time seems now, that first DDoS attack against the Internet provider, Panix (1996). Today, DDoS attacks have more lethal weapons, advanced techniques, and bigger botnets to crazily increase the damage.
