Hello basil this is GodlyMM here, about to inform you of the malicious DDoS attack. DDoS stands for distributed denial-of-service. Which is what basically happening to nexon at the moment. The way people DDoS, is they either attack from a single computer, or multiple computers. The way they do this is by overloading a server or website with "traffic", Usually a person or company with a big server can handle high traffic amounts. When someone tries to DDoS a server they attempt to make the server either slow down, or crash. This is done by using multiple computers to DDoS and send high amounts of traffic to the server causing it to overload. A single computer isn't considered a DDoS but a DoS attack. I'm pretty sure this is illegal and I have not learned as much as what the consequences are. I learned this in about 20 minutes of researching and this has quite interested me. Since it has been known for rival companies attacking their competitor with a DDoS attack, to basically screw them over. I'm pretty sure a group of hackers are attempting to bring down nexon. No one is safe from DDoS attack, since most firewalls allow port 32 (I believe) which is the access to internet, and if someone would attack from there, they can basically cause your system to crash.

@ohyeahdude It's not that simple, since the hackers are probably using programs to send an excessive amount of traffic toward their server, which technically isn't illegal...
@nightstrikez
no where did nexon go into depth of what it was, stop flaming.

@samstergx: Well, I said thanks, if you haven't noticed.

Considering your thread title of "What a DDoS basically does", Nexon already posted that on their website.

Now if your thread title was "DDoS attacks explained in depth", then I would have no reason for complaint of a misleading title here.

@samstergx: Something important you did not explain is how a DDoS is made. Most DDoS's are done by infecting other computers with a virus that will help you to overload the server through your command. Its like using mind control on a bunch of ants to take down a rat.

About the only thing they can do is try and track down where these hackers are and take them down in the real world.
Or wait for them to give up.

A DDoS attack is a nightmare for any company.[/quote]

tracking down is impossible
Botnets (network of bots / zombie computers) are computers infected by worms or Trojans and taken over surreptitiously by hackers and brought into networks to send spam, more viruses, or launch denial of service attacks.
a group of zombie computers is known as a botnet
if they are smart they would encrypt their ip lol but really tracking down the source of where it started would be impossible
