Attackers have many ways to attack your website. Some attackers/hackers do it for their greed while some do it to cause problems to you. One of the commonly known attacks that usually an attacker can perform is known as DDoS attack. So here is “DDoS attack Explained including Best DDoS Protection

DDoS ATTACK.

What is DDoS Attack?

DoS attack is known as a denial of service attack whereas advanced attack of it is known as DDoS attack(distributed denial of service attack). When a website receives more traffic than it can handle it goes down, this type of attack is known as Dos attack. For example, my website can receive 1K visitors per second and it is flooded to 20K visitors per second. Its server will go down as it can not handle such a great request.

As I’ve told you earlier about DoS attack, DDoS attack works on the same fundamentals. If we have to attack a famous website. DoS attack will not work as their server are powerful enough to handle such a great request. So the website will keep on running but every website’s server has some bandwidth. If the request crosses the bandwidth, the server will go down. DoS attack is for less powerful server whereas DDoS attacks are for a powerful server. DoS attack can be performed with a single device/PC. DDoS requires huge computing power.

DDoS attacks today is very uncommon as hackers have found very innovative ways to hack your website. Our site contains many articles about it and is updated on regular basis. Follow us for more information regarding cybersecurity and technology.

How attackers perform DDoS?

The attacker essentially gains control of many devices using a malicious program or malware. Now, each computer infected with that malware can be remotely controlled by the attacker. The attacker now sends requests to all computers infected with malware that each computer has to request the site from the server at a particular time. Now a huge amount of traffic is generated with essentially, the server will go down.

Best DDoS protection service.

Nowadays everybody wants security. There are some companies who provide very good security to DDoS attacks.

  • Incapsula.
  • Akamai.
  • Sucuri.
  • Myra

Among all the best internet attack protection. I’ve found Cloudflare to be the best. Cloudflare protects the website from Denial of service attacks as well as gives you free SSL certificate for free. Even our team of techeverywhere.in also uses Cloudflare in order to get a free SSL certificate and DDoS protection. It even hides our original IP of website. Which makes black hat hacking even difficult for hackers.

Hackers have many ways to reach your database and steal your privacy. Nowadays, people are uploading everything on social media basically on the internet. Hence, you can be hacked. There is an attack “MITMA” which a hacker might use to steal precious data from your personal computer(including phone) this is known as “Man in the middle attack” 

MITMA

What is MITA – Man in the middle attack?

MITMA is commonly known as the man in the middle attack. Hackers can steal your data easily performing this attack. Man in the middle attack can only be performed if the victim is connected to the same internet connection. For example, I and hacker are sitting in a coffee shop and using the public WI-FI of that shop. Hacker can intercept the packages, read my text messages, see what I am surfing etc. This type of attack is called the man in the middle attack or MITMA. Essentially a hacker comes in between our device and router and all the traffic that comes from the router is first received by the hacker and then passes to the particular device. Hence, this enables data to be easily stolen by a hacker. man in the middle attack

Http and Https connections in Mitma

There are two types of connections that are established while you surf a website. One is commonly known as http and other is https. Http connection is Hyper text transfer protocol whereas Https is Hyper text transfer protocol.

There are two types of data transfer. First is GET and second is POST. When we are surfing any website by clicking on a link etc. it is GET method whereas when we enter any information such as comment, sign in info etc. it is a POST request.

When we POST anything we send information to the server and while we receive any information from the server we use GET. Http connection is not secure as it allows data to be sent in human readable text whereas Https is a secure connection which doesn’t allow data to be transferred in human language.

While you surf http website and a hacker is doing man in the middle attack. He can read all the info that you’ve sent but in https connection, matter changes as it doesn’t allow the hacker to read info easily.

Read again I said easily not impossible. Yet a pro hacker can easily, even interpret in your connection and can even change the results that came from the server.

How to protect yourself?

Protecting yourself from a hacker’s attack is not an easy task but still is not impossible. 

If you want your data to be secure don’t use public wifi. Even try to protect your wifi to be hacked because if it happens hacker again gets a privilege to sniff the package in your network.

If you want to use public wifi, you can use it. You just need to be careful about a few things that’s enough. First, make sure you are connected to the public wifi that is 24*7 monitored by the govt. this prevents hackers to interpret your packages.
