The Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) features in malware enable attackers to overwhelm targeted systems, servers, or networks with excessive traffic, rendering them inaccessible to legitimate users. While DoS attacks often originate from a single source, DDoS attacks are more complex and involve multiple compromised systems attacking a single target. These features can serve various purposes, from simply causing disruption and financial loss to serving as a distraction for more covert activities being carried out simultaneously.
