Five DDoS attack tools that you should know about


Bottlenecks and ghosts in the wire


You need to minimize bottlenecks in your networks. However strong your policies to secure your organization’s networks from DDoS attacks, a simple misconfiguration could cause lethal damage to your online identity. For instance, consider the case wherein a server is able to handle over 50,000 connections in parallel but has been configured to allow only 1,000 parallel connections. This is a classic example of a bottleneck within a corporate network.  Another instance is that of lack of visibility of the network. If the administrator cannot clearly see what’s happening inside the wires, then a ghost could enter the wire anytime and damage the entire network!
