 File Integrity and Anti-DDoS Utilities

O'Reilly talks about file integrity and Anti-DDoS Utilities.

"If you're unfamilar with the term DDoS, it stands for Distributed Denial of Service. Basically, this type of attack looks for vulnerable hosts. Once a host is infected, it will in turn look for other vulnerable hosts to infect. Once enough hosts are infected (potentially hundreds of thousands), they are used to launch a collective attack against a target. For example, you may remember hearing about the DDoS attack against the root DNS servers. "
