Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: Currently,
hackers are increasingly focusing on attacking application layers rather
than network layers. DoS is one of the most common and age-old
techniques that helps carry out confidential data theft. Hackers use DoS
to flood a web server's computing and network resources with data,
thereby increasing the traffic. This automatically generates several
requests for access. As a result, the server ends up blocking access for
legitimate users. However, hackers these days are opting for DDoS
techniques, which are improved versions of DoS. While using the DDoS
technique, the hacker initiates a coordinated attack from multiple
systems, which is more powerful than DoS.
