DDoS attack: How dangerous is it?

DDoS attack explained

DDoS attack (Distributed Denial of Service attack) is a cyber threat that utilizes the capacity limits related to each of the network resources. Therefore, its main purpose is to disrupt critical targets, for instance, a system, or a network, or even a server. The DDoS attack sends a large number of requests to the targeted web resource. The aim is to overload the capacity of the website entirely. As a result, the target is not able to handle all of the requests, and the website could not function for regular users.
