Welcome back my fellow hackerians, Today i'm going to tell a bit more about the famous DDOS thing. And on top of that we're going to DDOS a website.
What is DDOS?
Distributed denial-of-service attack, or just DDOS for short. Let me start with just one computer and a bank site. When you connect packages are send form the server to you'r computer. You might experienced a effect which looks like a DDOS before. When a lot of people connect to that same bank page, a lot of packages need to be sent. That creates the DDOS effect. On a certain moment there are just to many packages to sent and the server becomes unreachable.
The DDOS effect means that the website you'r trying to visit is either running slow or unreachable.
Today we're DDOS-ing a website using SLowloris. Slowloris is a DDOS tool and is easy to use. If you're running backtrack/kali then you've probably got Slowloris pre-installed. if not go to this page and download it. Get to the directory where you saved the slowloris.pl file and run this command:
That will show you this screen:
Now we only need to actually use SlowLoris. Well that's easy, just enter the following command:
perl slowloris.pl -dns [www.yourwebsite.com]
If you want more information just enter this command:
Of course SlowLoris is not the only DDOS tool. However Slowloris is a great tool for a DDOS attack and is easy to use. Good luck my fellow hackers.
