Denial of Service -Attacks

DoS stands for “Denial of Service” (DoS). In information technology, this term relates to the non-availability of a service that should be available. Even though there may be different reasons causing the failure, DoS is usually assigned to an overload of the infrastructure systems. Such overloads may also be caused unintentionally, but may also be the result of a brute attack on the server, a computer or the components of a network.
