Security Terms

Denial of Service (DoS)

A type of attack conducted over the Internet, in which a massive amount of data is sent to a targeted computer system or resource (e.g., a program, website or network), with the aim of overwhelming and crashing it.

A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is typically conducted by a single, or small group of, computer systems and can be performed in a variety of ways. Even if a DOS attack does not result in the target totally crashing, so much resources may have been diverted to deal with the attack that performance is significantly degraded, or other users are unable to use the system or resource until the attack has ended.
