|Distributed Denial of Service Attacks have recently emerged as one of the most newsworthy, if not the greatest, weaknesses of the Internet. Overview Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a relatively new development; reports of the first DDoS attacks surfaced in mid-1999, with the highest-profile attacks coming in early 2000 against sites like Amazon.com, CNN.com, eBay and E-Trade.
