Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack is an attempt by a bad actor to disrupt the operation of an application, server or network by flooding it with traffic. DDoS attacks are among the most common forms of cyberattack. They often make use of networks (botnets) of devices (bots) that have been compromised by malware — placing them under the control of the bad actor.
