A denial of service attack, known by its abbreviation DoS, is an attack on a computer system or network with the intention to make it inaccessible to its legitimate users. It's carried out by launching massive connection requests against a machine that, if not powerful enough, won't be able to answer them correctly, causing the system to overload and collapse.
