The Rise of DDoS Attacks

Over the past decade, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have become increasingly prevalent in the digital landscape. These malicious attacks aim to disrupt the normal functioning of a website or online service by overwhelming its servers with a flood of illegitimate traffic. DDoS attacks can cause severe damage to businesses, resulting in lost revenue, reputation damage, and customer dissatisfaction.

Friday's DDoS Attack was a prime example of the evolving threat landscape. It showcased the importance of proactive security measures and the need for businesses to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals. At Orwedoit, we understand the seriousness of DDoS attacks and have developed comprehensive strategies to defend against them effectively.

Understanding Friday's DDoS Attack

The scale and intensity of the attack were unprecedented, causing widespread disruption and capturing headlines around the world. Our experts closely analyzed the attack, dissecting its complexities and identifying key patterns to help you better understand its nature.

The Attack Vectors

DDoS attacks can utilize various attack vectors to overwhelm a target's infrastructure. Friday's attack predominantly leveraged a combination of volumetric, application-layer, and protocol-based attacks. These techniques overwhelmed the victim's servers and network resources, rendering their services inaccessible to legitimate users.

The Impact

The impact of Friday's DDoS Attack was significant both in terms of financial losses and brand reputation. Several prominent businesses reported significant revenue declines due to prolonged periods of service unavailability.
