The Beauty Of A DDOS Attack (VIDEO)

Written by Mark Stevens on . Posted in Social Media, Technology


Said no one ever. Actually this time it is kinda beautiful.

Using a web traffic visualization tool, we get to experience the dreaded cyber attack in spectacular fashion.

A DDoS or distributed denial of service attack occurs when people flood a particular website with connection requests in an attempt to burn that mother down. This overwhelming flood of internet traffic eats up that sites bandwidth and thus shuts the site down to anyone trying to access it, which is never fun.

We’re able to visualize exactly what a DDoS feels like using a handy tool called Logstalgia.

“Logstalgia is a Web site traffic visualization that replays or streams Web-server access logs as a Pong-like battle between the Web server and a never ending torrent of requests.”
