Denial of Service
Denial of Service attacks aim to make a server or program unresponsive for users. These attacks may be volume-based, to overwhelm the system, or they may use certain logical flaws in the software to cut the service off from the users. The attack may come from one or multiple sources. These attacks do not usually lead to a remote code execution. Volume based attacks are best handled using a firewall application.
