In DOS i.e Denial of service attack, a client sent requests in a tremendous amount to flood the server when the server unable to handle them it goes offline. When you perform DOS using multiple Computers it becomes Distributed Denial of Service known as DDoS. Distributed Denial of Service is the most common, easy, and the dangerous hacking attack which can disturb and take down a server.
To perform a DDOS a Hacker first create its botnet Army by installing a Malware on multiple computers. According to CloudFlare, to launch a 65Gbps attack, you’d need a botnet with at least 65,000 compromised machines each capable of sending 1Mbps of upstream data. Once you create your botnet Army it will be an auto pilot attack all you need to is issue the launch command.
In this article, you will learn how to perform DDOs on a server from your computer. you can use Command prompt i.e CMD in Windows and Terminal in Linux to DDOS a Website. Several external tools also available to perform DDOS. For this tutorial, I will use CMD and LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Canon) to DDOS a website.Caution: This will use your bandwidth don’t perform DDOS if you have an internet connection with limited bandwidth. Performing DDOS on a website without the permission of the owner is illegal. I will not be responsible for any illegal activity.
1. How to perform DDOS on a website using CMD in Windows
Start CMD and type ping URL -t like Ping example.com -t when you see Reply from 22.214.171.124 then press Ctrl+c to cancel the process.
This will give you the IP address of the website. Now type ping IP -t -l 65500 like: Ping 192.168.22.1 -t -l 65500 and press enter to start the DDoS attack. Leave it running for 3 to 4 hours.
Now you have started a Denial of Services attack on a website, if the server is small it will take 3 to 4 hours to crash.
2. How to perform DDOS on a website using LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Canon).
LOIC is an open source network stress testing and denial-of-service attack application, written in C#. Download LOIC here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/loic/ turn off your antivirus before Extracting LOIC it is a portable software just open it.
- Enter the URL of the Website under Select your target and choose Lock on
- Enter the IP under the URL field and choose again choose Lock on. Use CMD to get the IP address of the website. e.g ping URL -t
- From the Method drop-down list, select UDP option.
- Uncheck the Wait for reply check box.
- Click on the IIMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER button to start the DDOS.
Let it run for 3 to 4 hours, if the website server is small it will go down and no one can access the website.
