See also: Network | Distributed Denial Of Service
State where a server cannot carry out its duties due to an overload of requests from clients.
Often a term for an attack by a cracker created to shut down a server that could not otherwise be compromised.
More robust servers must be attacked with a Distributed Denial Of Service, using a distributed network of cracked computers to “DOS” one computer.
