Teen Charged Over Cyber Attacks
So what is a DDoS attack ?
First DDoS stands for ” Distributed Denial Of Service ”
Think of it this way , imagine a business suddenly receiving 5000 phone calls from a variety of sources that arrive all at once but these calls do not stop.
If you have a malware / virus infected computer you may actually be contributing to the attacks.
You therefore have a responsibility to keep your computer free of malware and infections.
Please find below my comments from Channel 7 news on the DDoS story
