Such a title is the introduction to a really heavy menu. Both are perhaps, the most dangerous attacks that can be implemented online. Consequences for targets are absolutely not pleasant. Servers’ outages lead to big losses in terms of time, money, users’ and partners’ trust.
Criminals’ purposes define the strength of the attack.
- To demand a ransom.
- To call attention or defending personal or political ideas.
- To show power. Some hackers look for respect in their community through such attacks.
- To delete a rival competitor through these unfair methods.
- To distract companies’ owners from data breaching.
