Denial of Service Attacks
"DoS attacks are not unique to the digital world. They existed many years before anything digital was created. For example, someone sticking a piece of chewing gum into the coin slot of a vending machine prevents thirsty people from using the machine to fetch a refreshing drink. In the digital world, DoS attacks can be acts of vandalism, too. They are performed for fun, pleasure, or even financial gain. In general, DoS attacks are a tough problem to solve because the Internet was designed on a principle that everyone plays by the rules. In this article we will describe the network based DOS."
