Share: DDoS

Distributed denial of service (DDoS), happens when attackers send requests to a target’s IP address, causing the server or network to become overwhelmed, resulting in a denial-of-service to normal traffic.

Symptoms of a DDoS attack:
- a site or service is suddenly very slow or unavailable
- suspicious amounts of traffic from a single IP or IP range
- suspicious amounts of traffic from users who share the same profile, device, etc
- odd traffic patterns, spikes at odd hours, etc

Some methods to reduce or even to prevent DDoS:
- monitor web traffic
- restriction (for example country)
- use cloud
- increase bandwidth
- have plans (for example security plans)

Money game schemes, also known as 'Skim Cepat Kaya', are schemes dressed up as an investment-platform. They look legitimate but in fact they are illegal. Often, they falsely promise much higher interest rates, returns or profits to attract potential victims. They have no intention to uphold their promises. They seek to lure new victims.

TLS (Transport Layer Security) is an updated, more secure, version of SSL. Not only is TLS more secure and performant, most modern web browsers no longer support SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0.
