DDOS(distributed denial-of-service) Attack

A DDOS attack is the attack in which we attack from N number of computers to down the website DDOS is used to attack big websites. Basically, we do flooding from all the possible network and add the maximum traffic on the website which website cannot handle and it becomes unresponsive.

DOS(denial-of-service) Attack

DOS attack did only on small websites because it can be done from a single computer. the attacker usually sends excessive messages asking the network or server to authenticate requests that have invalid return addresses. The network or server will not be able to find the return address of the attacker when sending the authentication approval, causing the server to wait before closing the connection. When the server closes the connection, the attacker sends more authentication messages with invalid return addresses. Hence, the process of authentication and server wait will begin again, keeping the network or server busy.
