Why do people do DoS attacks?
« on: September 26, 2003, 10:30:32 pm »
What is in the interest of people to do DoS attacks on servers? The forum I am moderating, the PCFormat forums have been offline for most of the times in the past 2 weeks because someone is doing a DoS (denial of service) attack on one of the main servers of Futurenet.

This means that all of the forums that run off that server, and those are a lot, go down because we cannot connect to the central database server.

And that means that a couple of thousand of people cannot go to their favourite forums.

If you have a grudge against someone, spam their email or send them a bomb, but don't deprive many people of their daily routine.

Sorry, not trying to imply that any of you guys around here are doing these things. ;)

I think people here are really too much positive to do that kind of things. We can do AHS attacks thou. AHS = Acceptable Huggs Service. Wanna one?

HUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUGHUG

And besides : your alltime favourite forum (Machinae Supremacy MAD MAD forum) is still online! Is it great? If someone would hurt this forum I would go berzerk. Totally.Grrrrrrrrr..... Don't dare to try it anyone!

And I agree you totally. People that do that kind of things are somekind retards or something. Don't send emal-bombs. Don't send virus. Be adult. Go and say what you think. It's more effective that way.

Gotta watch out for those AHS attacks, no one can block them.

Some people just don't have anything better to do. Have you got loggin services and their IP address. If you do send their service providers an e-mail explaining your situation. They should have something to say unless they are too lazy to get off their bumbs.

Don't you hate it when your favourite forums goes down ?

They do it because they don't know how to live a satisfying life?

Because people are a**holes and think they can get away with it.  Pure and simple.  I hope they nail the SOB.
