“Understanding DOS Attacks: Disrupting Digital Services and Network Functionality”

Due to the apparent occurrence of multiple attempted Denial of Service (DOS) attacks on both this website and climatequbes.com, I have opted to redirect my posts to clitribe.com (C-L-I-T-R-I-B-E) and cccmty.com (C-C-C-M-T-Y). This decision stems from the recognition that having alternate blog platforms is essential in light of situations such as this.

All three articles are linked to source.

I have currently published, or by the time you read this message, will have published three distinct articles. The initial article delves into my contemplations regarding COP CITY, while the subsequent piece addresses the reality that we are now faced with two fundamental choices concerning the approach to our collective Climate Emergency. Lastly, I have composed an extensive post outlining an idea that has captured my thoughts. This idea expands upon the concept of ‘Adaptive Resiliency,’ which has evolved into a necessity of paramount importance.

What the heck is a DOS attack?

A Denial of Service (DOS) attack is a deliberate and malicious attempt to disrupt the normal functioning of a computer system, network, or online service, rendering it inaccessible to its intended users. In a DOS attack, the attacker overwhelms the target system with an excessive volume of incoming requests or data, exceeding the system’s capacity to process them. As a result, the targeted system becomes slow, unresponsive, or completely unavailable to legitimate users, effectively denying them access to the services it offers.

DOS attacks can exploit vulnerabilities in a system’s infrastructure, flood it with traffic, or exhaust its resources, causing significant disruptions and potential financial losses for businesses or individuals relying on the affected services. The motivation behind DOS attacks can vary, ranging from hacktivism and competition to more malicious intent, making cybersecurity measures crucial in defending against such threats.
