Ive noticed that dos attacks have been increasing. Why do ppl dos attack servers and what is a dos attack to begin with?

I think dos attacks suck because i rent a pair of game servers and the server rack got dos attacked.

Plz add some more on this

you referring to a Denial Of Service attack?

I would like to list out why people like to DDOS.

  1. Fame
  2. Revenge
  3. Hatred
  4. Fun
  5. To have a good feeling that they managed to cause trouble (i.e. troublemakers like mOrpheuS)


That's all I can think of.

Yes, they just to it for all that, nothing else.

I also don't quite understand the relation between an old operating system attacking and trying to take over servers and some politician contesting elections.

and no DOS

DOS stands for Denial Of Service (when used in a hacking context. MS DOS the operating system is totally different). This is basically when someone sets up a computer to request a load of useless information from a server so that it slows down or is forced to go offline. This is often used for blackmail, where a company is threatened that their website will be DOSed (taking it offline, losing the company money) unless they pay tens of thousands of dollars.

DDOS is Distributed Denial of Service - it works in the same way as the above DOS attack, but it is caused my many computers "distributed" across the country or world attacking the same server at once. Quite often, virus writers will use a virus to take control of a computer and use it as part of a DDOS attack.

To extend animal's list.

A DDDOS is a DNS Distributed Denial Of Service. It uses open relay dns servers (most servers are unfortunately still allowing recursive dns) to amplify the packages with (something like) 50 times.

Another reason is to prevent something. Make life harder for those they hate.

I agree, but I would like to add "Being Bored" to it. It's striking that when they're a national holiday the number of hacking attempts and other attacks increase.

@DeFwh: what's the relation between DOS-attacks and "Should Senator Stroger still run for office?"? I don't see it. Sad

Yes I think these are the most reasons and they are all lead that these people are sick ....as how can a person imagine his happiness on behalf hurting others and make troubles and make them lose their time and money .....

This is something natural though. Recent survey showed that men love to see others go down, while women have less of these tendencies. It'll have something to do with evolution and survival of the fittest.
