BW-DDoS attacks are usually generated from a large number of compromised computers (zombies or pup-pets). BW-DDoS attackers use different techniques and different types of attacking agents. The Internet is vulnerable to bandwidth distributed denial-of-service (BW-DDoS) attacks, wherein many hosts send a huge number of packets to cause congestion and disrupt legitimate traffic. So far, BW-DDoS attacks have employed relatively crude, inefficient, brute-force mechanisms; future attacks might be significantly more effective and harmful. To meet the increasing threats, more advanced defenses are necessary.
