  • Transmits data packets
  • Exploits a known fault in an OS, service or application
  • Results in system crash or CPU at 100%
  • Distributed reflective denial of service DRDoS
  • Reflected approach, rather than direct to victim, manipulates traffic so that attack is reflected back to victim from other sources
  • Example: DNS Poisoning and SMURF
