In this course, Ethical Hacking: Denial of Service (part of the Ethical Hacking series), you'll look at the purposes of these attacks, ranging from disrupting gaming adversaries, to hacktivism, and to law enforcement by government agencies. You'll also explore various ways attacks are constructed and the weaknesses they exploit in order to be successful.
