Technology - Denial of Service Attacks, Overloading Internet Infrastructure - Denial of Service Attacks:  Overloading the Infrastructure       Abstract:  The new type of "Denial of Service" attack that Mafiaboy accomplished on Amazon.com and other internet companies has raised new questions about the security of web-based companies.  Denial of Service attacks are devastating because they compromise the security of a company's network while at the same time are very easy to generate.  Because of the ease with which a cyber criminal can generate such an attack, many cyber criminals and cyber terrorists have added this type of attack to their arsenal.  In the coming years, Denial of Service attacks will be used more frequently, unless new safeguards can be built into company and government networks that prevent them.  This paper provides an in-depth analysis of how these attacks work and poses questions as to whether or not the worldwide information technology infrastructure will be able to hold up....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
