My favorite part of this bullshit Law Against War Toys and Video Games is that its objectives are social disarmament, the greatest sum of happiness possible, the construction of a greater motherland and the formation of a new citizen that puts the human being above market rules as a reflection of the capitalist model, a model that [*GASP*] threatens the very existence of humanity [!!!].
I’m actually working in the translation of the law to English. Quite difficult in some parts :-/
A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person or persons to prevent an Internetsite or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely. Perpetrators of DoS attacks typically target sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks, credit card payment gateways, and even root nameservers.
One common method of attack involves saturating the target (victim) machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.
